Range Description

The range of this species is extremely unclear following its separation from Xenopus laevis. For the purposes of this assessment we have assumed that all animals in Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo east of 28E refer to this species. It occurs up to 3,000 m asl. We therefore consider that all animals from Zambia southwards refer to Xenopus laevis, and all animals in Nigeria, Cameroon, Central African Republic, and the Democratic Republic of Congo west of 28E refer to X. laevis sudanensis.
