Hyperolius langi Noble, 1924

The status of this form is not clear. Laurent divides his large series from Virunga N. P. into a ”facies kuligae”, with an hourglass pattern very similar to H. kuligae from Cameroun and Uganda, and a ”facies langi” which is similar to the type of langi, and outside the variation of the Cameronese H. kuligae. We may therefore have two species confused in eastern R. D. Congo, H. langi and H. kuligae. H. langi may be identical to the more westerly H. platyceps.
