Duttaphrynus microtympanum (common names: southern hill toad, small-eared toad) is a species of toad found in the Western Ghats of India, possibly wider.[2]

First finger extending beyond second; toes about half webbed, with single subarticular tubercles; two moderate metatarsal tubercles ; no tarsal fold. The tarsometatarsal articulation reaches the eye, or between the eye and the tip of the snout. Upper surfaces with irregular, distinctly porous warts; parotoids prominent, elliptical, twice or twice and a half as long as broad. Brown above; yellow beneath, marbled with brown. Male with a subgular vocal sac.
