Description

A small, compact Hyperolius (males 19–21 mm, females 23 mm) from south-western Côte d’Ivoire. Dorsum translucent green, sometimes with fine black points. Ventrum in both sexes translucent greyish white. Discs green. No canthal stripe. Pupil horizontal.

This species is very similar to H. fusciventris lamtoensis and H. wermuthi. It differs from the former by its translucent ventrum without traces of red marbling and the absence of dark lateral pigmentation. It differs from H. wermuthi by its white, not green ventral pigmentation, but should be compared critically with that species since the differences between them seem very small.
