Taxonomic Notes

This species is in the Amietophrynus blanfordii Group according to Tandy and Keith (1972), who also noted that it was described from inadequate postmetamorphic material making it a nomen dubium. Tandy and Feener (1985), suggested that it might represent A. xeros, A. regularis or A. pentoni.

This species was under the generic name Amietophrynus but is now treated under Sclerophrys (Frost 2016).

This is an amended assessment created to account for the change in generic name.
