Taxonomic Notes

Phrynobatrachus natalensis most likely represents a complex of cryptic species due to its widespread distribution, and morphological diversity of eggs, larvae, and adults (Rödel, 2000; Channing, 2001; Largen, 2001; Channing and Howell, 2006; Pickersgill, 2007; Zimkus et al., 2010).

Rödel (2000) reported the variation in clutch size, tadpole morphology, size of the adult frog and period of activity, suggests that this taxon may comprise more than one species (Text from Minter et al., 2004, © SI/MAB Biodiversity Program).
