Comprehensive DescriptionRead full entry
A small, slender Afrixalus (males 1522 mm, females 16-24 mm) from the savanna in eastern Africa. Dorsal asperities normally well developed over the entire upper surfaces in males, confined to the head in females. Ventral asperities are strongest anteriorly, or confined to chest and gular disc. Above silvery to yellow with a brown lateral band with a distinct lower margin and usually with light speckles, often aggregated along the middle of the band. At its most complete the pattern consists of a pair of irregular dark stripes from the sacrum, converging between the eyes as a headspot. Tibia is pale with a dark, oblique transverse band that bisects the pale area completely.
