Fowler’s toads can be found throughout the state of Mississippi (Powell et al., 2016). Colors include gray, olive, reddish, or yellowish with a middorsal line and dark blotches. In this species, paratoid glands are often more oval-shaped, and come in direct contact to the cranial crests. Underside usually plain white or yellow, with a few dark spots (Powell et al., 2016). Its call is much shorter than A. americanus, usually 1-4 seconds (Powell et al., 2016). No subspecies are recognized.

- 3 or more warts in largest blotches (usually)
