Description
A medium sized Kassina (males 32.3-35.5 mm) with a mid-dorsal line. Very similar to Kassina senegalensis, but differing by the gular flap being round, not strap-like, the presence of a small tarsal tubercle and the absence of dark spots under the eye. The darker dorsal pattern has a finely serrated outline. Kassina wazae seems similar to the western K. fusca in several characters.
