Diagnosis and Description: This species is described by Loveridge (1945) as a moderately large tree frog, with the SVL measuring 34 – 44 mm. The head is as long as it is broad. The tympanum is moderate and about half of the orbital diameter (Loveridge 1945). Tyler and Davies (1978) describe the species as having long fingers, which are usually unwebbed, with terminal discs. Relative finger lengths in increasing order, are as follows: I, II, IV, III (Loveridge 1945). Toes are long and webbed.
Coloration: The dorsal skin is dark green and brown, and usually coarse, especially on the eyelids and the head. The ventral surface is usually colored with streaks or patches of dark pigments. Nasal cavities are small and widely separated (Tyler and Davis 1978).
Color in Preservation: Color in preservative is a lead color on the dorsum. A white patch is present on the upper lip beneath the eye. The venter is dusky brown or grayish (Loveridge 1945).
