M 54 mm, F 55-64 mm. Tibiotarsal articulation reaches the eye. Hand without webbing, foot webbing 1(1), 2i(1), 2e(0.5), 3i(1.5), 3e(1), 4i(2.5), 4e (2), 5(1). Terminal discs of fingers and toes strongly enlarged. Dorsal skin smooth. Colour dorsally brown with more or less distinct olive or light brown patches and markings. Venter whitish with brown pigment on the limbs and throat. Males as far as known probably have no nuptial pads but also lack femoral glands (Glaw and Vences 2007).

Similar species: Due to its large size and unique habitat this species is unlikely to be mistaken with any other Malagasy frog (Glaw and Vences 2007).
