English Names

White-fronted Reed Frog (Frank and Ramus, 1995, Compl. Guide Scient. Common Names Amph. Rept. World: 66).


Known only from the imprecise type locality of ""Deutsch-Ostafrika" (= Tanzania).


Probably a synonym of Hyperolius pusillus according to Laurent, 1985, In Frost (ed.), Amph. Species World: 207. Not mentioned by Schiøtz, 1999, Treefrogs Afr.Channing and Rödel, 2019, Field Guide Frogs & Other Amph. Afr.: 396, regarded this nominal taxon as too insufficiently known to treat adequately in their fieldguide.
