According to Inger and Stuebing (2005) this toad is found in lowlands up to 400 m asl in seepage areas. However, we found Leptophryne borbonica also in higher elevations up to 1100 m asl in the Bario highlands and at Mt. Penrissen.

The body is slender in both sexes. Hind limbs are very long, making this toad a good jumper. Distinct cross marks on the dorsum make identification easy.

Size of adults: 30 mm in males, 40–50 mm snout-vent length in females.
