|Species Authority:||(Boettger, 1899)|
|Taxonomic Notes:||Perret (1960; 1976) considers this to be an unmistakeable species on the basis of its morphology. However, Schiøtz (pers. comm.) considers that the type (and only) specimen is probably an aberrant Afrixalus paradorsalis.|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Data Deficient ver 3.1|
|Assessor(s):||Arne Schiøtz, Jean-Louis Amiet|
