Morphology

The following is the description of Atelophryne minuta by Boulenger (1906), which was synonymized with Didynamipus sjostedti by Mertens (1965):

Snout is obtusely pointed, prominent, obliquely truncate, and as long as the eye. Canthus rostralis is angular, and the loreal region is vertical. Interorbital space is broader than the upper eyelid. Tympanum is hidden. Fingers and toes are obtuse. The third finger is twice as long as second. The first and fourth fingers and toes are rudimentary, and fifth toe absent.The third toe is two and a half times as long as the second. A very slight rudiment of webbing is present between the toes. Subarticular tubercles are very large, but feebly prominent. Two obtuse metatarsal tubercles are present. The tarso-metatarsal articulation reaches the tip of the snout, or between the eye and the tip of the snout. The dorsum exhibits small smooth warts above, and the ventral skin is granular. Parotoids are absent. Dorsum is brown, with dark and lighter marblings. A dark streak is present under the canthus rostralis, sometimes continuing through the temporal region and along the side of the body, with or without a lighter streak above it. Venter is dirty white.
