The tadpole of the north african toad Bufo brongersmai is described for the first time in chronological developmental stages from hatching to the onset of metamorphosis based on a complete ontogenetic series. The structure of the oral disk and of the buccopharyngeal cavity are shown. Fifteen metric parameters are described in eight tadpole size classes by means of standard statistical methods and they are compared with those of other circummediterranean Bufo species. The eidonomic characteristics of the tadpole of B. brongersmai turn out to be intermediate between B. bufo and B. viridis.
