Four-toed Stump-toed Frog (Stumpffia tetradactyla)
This frog was just a miniscule little speck, perhaps a centimeter long. It was in a shallow stream in a very dark area of the forest and was nearly impossible to see. Thank goodness for my 200mm macro lens and tripod. I originally tentatively identified it as Plethodontohyla minuta, but after poring over the 3rd edition of Glaw and Vences I have only slightly less tentatively decided that it better fits the description of B, stumpffi, which is indeed one of the smallest frog species in the world.

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