Leptopelis omissus differs from the sympatric L. calcaratus, the only other form with a spur on the heel, by being smaller, with a less conspicuous tarsal spur, and by its rounded canthus rostralis and red-brown coloration. It differs from L. aubryi by its tarsal spur and a different voice. This Leptopelis is both widespread and abundant in Cameroun and in western R. Congo but hard to collect since it tends to sit high up in trees.
