Common name Medem giant glass frog has been coined for it. "Centrolene" medemi_sentence_4

Description "Centrolene" medemi_section_0

Adult males measure 26–31 mm (1.0–1.2 in) and adult females 35–44 mm (1.4–1.7 in) in snout–vent length. "Centrolene" medemi_sentence_5

The snout is rounded in dorsal profile and truncated to slightly protruding when viewed laterally. "Centrolene" medemi_sentence_6

The tympanum is indistinct and partly covered by the supra-tympanic fold. "Centrolene" medemi_sentence_7

The fingers have absent to extensive webbing (from inner to outer fingers). "Centrolene" medemi_sentence_8

The toes are extensively webbed. "Centrolene" medemi_sentence_9

The dorsal surfaces of head, body, and limbs are olive green to grayish brown and bear large cream spots. "Centrolene" medemi_sentence_10

The ventral parietal peritoneum is white. "Centrolene" medemi_sentence_11

The pre-pollical spine is not separated from the first finger. "Centrolene" medemi_sentence_13

The iris is grayish brown and has dark reticulation. "Centrolene" medemi_sentence_14

Habitat and conservation "Centrolene" medemi_section_1

This species lives on streamsides in montane cloud forests at elevations of 790–1,800 m (2,590–5,910 ft) above sea level. "Centrolene" medemi_sentence_15

It also occurs in secondary forest, as long as there is good vegetation cover close to streams. "Centrolene" medemi_sentence_16

The eggs are laid on leaves overhanging the water. "Centrolene" medemi_sentence_17

It is locally common in Colombia, but only one specimen, collected in 1975, is known from Ecuador. "Centrolene" medemi_sentence_18

The specific threats are poorly known but probably include habitat loss, introduction alien predatory fishes, and pollution from the spraying of illegal crops. "Centrolene" medemi_sentence_19

Chytridiomycosis might also be a threat. "Centrolene" medemi_sentence_20
