Hymenochirus boulengeri

Hymenochirus boulengeri, also known as eastern dwarf clawed frog, is a species of frog in the family Pipidae. It is endemic to northeastern Democratic Republic of the Congo where it is only known from two localities.[1][2] It is presumably ecologically similar to Hymenochirus boettgeri, an aquatic frog that occurs in still, shaded water in lowland rainforest, and in pools by slow-flowing rivers. Threats to this little-known species are unknown.[1]
