Description

A medium-sized Hyperolius (males 23-30 mm, females 31 mm) from the forest in the Akwapim-Togo range in easternmost Ghana and adjacent part of Togo, with an almost uniform brown dorsum and a broad light dorsolateral stripe. Pupil horizontal. This form is very similar to H. picturatus, and should possibly be regarded as an eastern subspecies of it. This is not done here because the status of H. picturatus is so uncertain. H. baumanni differs from picturatus, however, in having a larger gular flap, a great constancy in colour-pattern and a different voice.
