Hyperolius endjami Amiet, 1980
© 2008 Jean-Louis Amiet (1 of 1)
H. endjami is very similar and possibly related to H. acutirostris and H. mosaicus. It seems to be separated into two populations in Cameroun, with some differences in dimensions and pattern. H. endjami differs from H. acutirostris and H. mosaicus in its larger gular flap and reduced black ventral pigmentation. From H. acutirostris furthermore it differs in pattern in that the dorsal markings do not form transverse bands and the light band on the hindpart of the back in acutirostris is absent in endjami. From H. mosaicus it differs in the absence of small white tubercles on its back.
