Comprehensive Description

Read full entry


A small (18–23 mm) Afrixalus from the savannas of West Africa to north-eastern R. D. Congo with a whitish to yellow dorsum and a thin dark vertebral line, at least on the hindpart of the body. A broader dark lateral stripe from tip of snout to groin present. This is the only small Afrixalus in the western and central African savanna with such markings.
Voice: The calling site seems to be dense, rather low grass growing on soil flooded by a few centimetres of water. The species is very inconspicuous and does not occur in large numbers. The voice is a quiet high-pitched buzzing. The call consists of a succession of figures, 43–45 per second with an indistinct frequency-intensity maximum at about 4000–4500 cps.
