Here we describe the tadpoles of Rhinella jimi. Rhinella jimi tadpoles are benthic and exotrophic and display aggregative behavior. These tadpoles can be distinguished from other members of the Rhinella marina group by the combination of the following characters: spiracle with external tube opening on midbody; snout sloped in lateral view; eyes and nostrils proportionally larger than in Rhinella schneideri. Finally, we reviewed the information available on the other described tadpoles of the R. marina species group and compare them with the tadpole of R. jimi.
