Males grow to 74 mm (2.9 in) and females to 101 mm (4.0 in) in snout–vent length.
Natural habitats of Peltophryne guentheri are dry lowland valleys in both mesic and xeric areas. These frogs have been observed to sit on or by piles of cattle manure. They appear to use sit-and-wait foraging strategy to catch insects on manure.
It is threatened by habitat loss caused by livestock grazing and selective logging, and by agricultural pollution.
