Bufo ibarrai is a large (males to 82 mm, females to 94 mm SVL) member of the Bufo coccifer group that is distinguished from all other members of the group by its large size, and from most by its massive cranial crests and bulbous supratympanic crest. It is sexually dimorphic with respect to skin texture, with males having rounded and females spinous lateral tubercles. It differs from the relatively large B. porteri in distribution and in features of tadpole coloration. The species is found in the highlands (1360-1980 m) of central and southern Guatemala and western Honduras.
