status

 

Taxon classification Animalia Anura Phrynobatrachidae

Phrynobatrachus acridoides (Cope, 1867) 

Material

Mt. M’pàluwé ( PEM A11366, male, 26.6 mm SUL; PEM A1375, male, 26.4 mm SUL).

Comments

Found moving near stagnant pools at a low-elevation (544 m asl) streams. Species identification was based on extensive webbing and swollen toe tips. Poynton (1966) records both Phrynobatrachus natalensis  and Phrynobatrachus acridoides  from Mt. M’pàluwé area. We only found the latter.
