Taxonomic Notes: Although there have been no recent records of this species, even though it occurs in a well-surveyed region, it appears to be taxonomically valid (M.-O. Rödel pers. comm.).

This species was under the generic name Amietophrynus but is now treated under Sclerophrys (Frost 2016).

This is an amended assessment created to account for the change in generic name.
