A new species of Tomoptema, T. krugerensis, sp. n., has been recorded from the Kruger National Park, Republic of South Africa. Morphologically it is very similar to T. delalandei cryptotis (Boulenger) but the mating call is markedly different from that of the other members of the genus and this is coupled with small but consistent morphological differences. T. krugerensis sp. n. is known to occur only on a portion of the western fringe of the vast sandveld areas of Mozambique, but possibly has… Expand
The distribution of Tomopterna krugerensis (Anura: Ranidae) in the Republic of South Africa
TLDR
A new and cryptic species of Tomopterna, T. krugerenis, has recently been described from the Kruger National Park, Republic of South Africa, where it appears to be confined to the Wambiya sandveld region in the north. Expand
A new sand frog from central Tanzania (Anura: Ranidae: Tomopterna)
TLDR
A new species of sand frog in the genus Tomopterna is described from the highlands of south‐central Tanzania on the basis of a low‐pitched advertisement call, more webbing, and differences in morphology and colour pattern. Expand
A molecular phylogeny of the frog genus Tomopterna in Southern Africa: examining species boundaries with mitochondrial 12S rRNA sequence data.
TLDR
A phylogeny of Tomopterna is proposed based on partial sequences of the mitochondrial 12S rRNA gene, including all seven named species and three undescribed species which were discovered during the course of this study. Expand

TLDR
Bufo canaliferus and B. coccifer bear neither a close resemblance to each other nor to the other five species, and appear to belong to different species groups than that to which B. valliceps belongs. Expand
