Range DescriptionThis species occurs in Africa south of the Sahara from Mauritania eastward to Sudan, South Sudan, Eritrea and Djibouti; and in the Sahara, in the Trarza region (Mauritania) and in the Air mountains (Niger). Records from Yemen refer to Bufo tihamicus. It is not present in Egypt, reports by Anderson (1898) refer to modern day Sudan (S. Baha El Din pers. comm.). There do not appear to be records from Côte d’Ivoire, Togo, Chad and Central African Republic, but it is likely to occur in these countries.
