Taxonomic Notes

According to Rödel and Schiøtz (2004), the West African and eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo populations may comprise separate species. J. Poynton in Frost (1985) suggested that records from Shaba Province, Rep. Congo, assigned to this species do not agree in critical ways with the type material. In addition, Zimkus et al. (2010) identified two populations that are morphologically similar to P. gutturosus. Phrynobatrachus aff. gutturosus 1 and 2 from Côte d’Ivoire will likely be described as new species after additional investigation.
