A rather small spotted Kassina (21-35 mm) from northern and north-western Cameroun. Similar to K. maculosa, but differing by the dorsal spots being at least twice as long as broad with a tendency to be placed in three longitudinal lines, the median one often forming an unbroken line. Marbling of limbs tends to be longitudinal.
