Hyperolius pseudargus Schiøtz & Westergaard, 1999
© 2008 Mette Westergaard (1 of 1)
Similar to H. argus, but less webbed and with a very different voice, a fast series of very loud clicks. The morphological differences from H. argus, a coastal lowland form, are very small. In view of the great similarity it would be interesting to secure females of H. pseudargus to compare them with the distinctive female pattern of H. argus. H. kachalolae is also somewhat similar. It has a thin red canthal and dorsolateral line, a different calling site and a different voice.
