A large frog, snout-vent lengths of males: 60-90 mm and females: 70-135 mm. The color is dorsally olive or yellow with dark brown to black spots. Ventral color is white to yellowish. A yellow vertebral stripe is prominent in some specimen. This species looks very similar to Hoplobatrachus tigerinus.

H. crassus was once confused with H. tigerinus (Kirtis.). It is unclear if H. tigerinus is really a Sri Lankan species.
