Taxonomic Notes

The two populations of puddle frogs identified as P. aff. latifrons from the Democratic Republic of Congo and Tanzania are morphologically similar to the West African P. latifrons but differ from this species by 18–19% in mtDNA (Zimkus et al., 2010). In addition, the P. aff. latifrons populations differ from each other by 7–8%. Additional study is needed to determine if these species can be assigned to known species or if this group comprises one or two new species.
