These frogs look a lot like Mantidactylus femoralis, but so do a bunch of undescribed species. C'mon Madagascar herpetological taxonomists, this group needs some of your love!

Here is a list of all the reptiles and frogs I saw on this 2023 trip to Madagascar.

This is lighter and more uniform in color than the previous two mystery frogs, but has essentially the same shape (including the somewhat-pointy snout). I would have chosen Mantidactylus femoralis for the ID if I didn't know that there are several undescribed lookalike species.

unidentified species (Mantidactylus "femoralis")
This one comes complete with racing stripe and extra-bumpy skin! You would think these extra features would help clarify which species it is, but not so much.
