|Scientific Name:||Afrixalus septentrionalis|
|Species Authority:||Schiøtz, 1974|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Least Concern ver 3.1|
|Assessor/s:||Martin Pickersgill, Arne Schiøtz, Kim Howell|
|Reviewer/s:||Global Amphibian Assessment Coordinating Team (Simon Stuart, Janice Chanson and Neil Cox)|
Listed as Least Concern in view of its relatively wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
|Range Description:||This poorly known species has been recorded from a small number of localities in inland southeastern Kenya and northeastern Tanzania. It has been recorded from Ngomeni in Kenya south to Tarangire National Park in Tanzania. Its distribution is still imperfectly known, and it is probably more widespread than the few records suggest.|
Native:Kenya; Tanzania, United Republic of

|Population:||The limited information available suggests that it is common in suitable locations.|
|Habitat and Ecology:||It is associated with grassy pools and marshes in dry savannah. It presumably breeds in temporary pools.|
|Major Threat(s):||Local populations are probably affected by overgrazing by domestic livestock, as well as by fire, and perhaps drought. However, it is unlikely to be seriously at risk.|
|Conservation Actions:||It occurs in Tsavo West and Tsavo East National Parks in Kenya, and in Tarangire National Park in Tanzania.|
