  • date of photo  Oct 29, 2022
  • location   Andasibe/Mantadia National Park (Moramanga, Madagascar)
  • family Mantellidae
  • order Anura
  • class Amphibia
  • notes   At the time this picture was taken there was only one candidate for i.d. Mantidactylus betsileanus. In the intervening period the species has undergone a taxonomic split and there are now 2 possible candidates i.e M.betsileanus & M,katae. Neither of these species can be identified without details of the size and position of the Femoral glands! I can therefore only identify this to Genus level.
