This is an intensely warty species that is both ground-dwelling and tree climbing. The Mazumbai warty frog is one of only two species in its genus, and is fairly small (measuring 30-40 mm in length), with males being markedly smaller than females. Eggs are laid in dark, damp locations and undergo direct development, hatching as froglets. It is found in damp mountain forests with dense undergrowth, and is presumed to be intolerant to habitat degradation. Although it is found in three forest reserves, none of these protected areas provide a completely safe refuge and all are threatened by some degree of habitat destruction, through factors such as logging and agriculture.
