Platypelis tuberifera — Ambatoharanana Giant Treefrog
"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.
