Phlyctimantis verrucosus

Phlyctimantis verrucosus is a species of frog in the family Hyperoliidae. It is found in central and eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, northern Rwanda, and southern and western Uganda.[1][2] It might be the same species as Phlyctimantis leonardi found further west, showing clinal variation;[2] in any case, the border between these two species is not well known.[1]
