Afrixalus paradorsalis Perret, 1960
family: Hyperoliidae
genus: Afrixalus
Species Description: Perret J-L. 1960. Batraciens du genre Afrixalus du Cameroun. Revue de Zoologie et de Botanique Africaines. Tervuren 61: 366–374.
Taxonomic Notes: Channing & Rödel (2019) recognize Afrixalus manengoubensis as a species distinct from A. paradorsalis. We follow the original proposal by Amiet (2009; Revue Suisse de Zoologie) to have A. manengoubensis as a subspecies of A. paradorsalis, which is supported by the phylogeographic studies by both Charles et al. (2018; Journal of Biogeography) and Portik et al. (2019; Systematic Biology) which found manengoubensis to be a distinct lineage embedded within A. paradorsalis.
