If you add this to the Global Amphibian BioBlitz it might be a new species addition. At least you'll get better identification.

Thanks for the hint. I guess it is a melanistic form, but I can't tell which species. I am very curious if it will result in good determination.

This looks like Mantidactylus cowanii, a really nice frog with cryptic coloration that blends well into dark rocks next to fast-flowing streams, but as soon as they are out of their element their coloration is really dramatic!
