Platypelis tuberifera — Ambatoharanana Giant Treefrog
A big taxonomic revision in 2016 has reclassified this species as Cophyla tuberifera, but that change doesn't seem to have been accepted yet by the majority of authorities.
"Giant Treefrogs" is an odd English name for this genus in the family Microhylidae, which essentially means "miniature treefrogs". They indeed are not very large, with a maximum length of about 40mm. Compare this to, say, Australia's White-lipped Treefrog, which reaches a length of over 135mm.
Here is a list of all the reptiles and frogs I saw on this trip to Madagascar.
