Abstract Nadzikambia is a monotypic genus described to accommodate the Mulanje chameleon, N. mlanjensis. During herpetological surveys of isolated mountains in Mozambique a population of chameleons was discovered on Mount Mabu. It is referable to the genus Nadzikambia, but features of scalation, colouration and genetic divergence distinguish this population from N. mlanjensis. It is described as a new species, Nadzikambia baylissi, and represents the second species in the genus and the first… 
A New Species of Chameleon (Sauria: Chamaeleonidae: Kinyongia) from the Northern Albertine Rift, Central Africa
Abstract The recently erected chameleon genus Kinyongia currently includes 17 species, with the majority of this diversity occurring in montane regions of East Africa. Kinyongia adolfifriderici is
A new species of Lygodactylus (Squamata: Gekkonidae) endemic to Mount Namuli, an isolated 'sky island' of northern Mozambique.
TLDR
The sister taxon relationship of the dwarf gecko species on Mount Mulanje and Mount Namuli illustrates the historical biogeographic connections between these inselbergs, a pattern which is emerging with continued work in this region.
Contributions to the herpetofauna of the Albertine Rift: Two new species of chameleon (Sauria: Chamaeleonidae) from an isolated montane forest, south eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.
TLDR
Two new species of chameleons from the genera Rhampholeon and Kinyongia are described from an isolated montane forest remnant situated toward the southern end of the Albertine Rift bordering Lake Tanganyika, found to have morphological features that distinguish them from other congeners.
Pygmy chameleons of the Rhampholeon platyceps compex (Squamata: Chamaeleonidae): description of four new species from isolated 'sky islands' of northern Mozambique.
TLDR
The taxonomic status of recently discovered populations of pygmy chameleons (Rhampholeon) from the northern Mozambique montane isolates of Mt. Chiperone, Mt. Inago and Mt. Namuli are assessed, and the species is now considered endemic to the Mulanje massif.
Description of a new flat gecko (Squamata: Gekkonidae: Afroedura ) from Mount Gorongosa, Mozambique
A new species of flat gecko, Afroedura gorongosa sp. nov., is described from Gorongosa National Park, Sofala Province, central Mozambique. The new species is morphologically similar to A.
Neglected refugia of biodiversity: mountainous regions in Mozambique and Malawi yield two novel freshwater crab species (Potamonautidae: Potamonautes)
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships amongst the southern African freshwater crab fauna are reinvestigated following the recent collection of morphologically distinct Potamonautes specimens from remote mountainous regions in Malawi and Mozambique and revealed the presence of two novel evolutionary lineages.
First herpetological surveys of Mount Lico and Mount Socone, Mozambique
—The first herpetological surveys of two mountains in northern Mozambique, Mount Lico and Mount Socone, are presented. A total of 19 species of amphibians (two orders, eight families, and 11 genera)
New records of the Large-eyed Green Snake, Philothamnus macrops (Boulenger 1895), from Mozambique
Northern Mozambique is one of the most poorly known regions for herpetofauna in south-eastern Africa and only in the last decade has it received attention in this regard through a series of
A contribution to the bryoflora of Mozambique from the ‘Google Forest’, Mabu Mountain, Zambezia Province
Abstract Mozambique, with only approximately 82 moss and 54 liverwort species recorded, is among the bryologically most poorly known regions of Africa. We here report on a collection of bryophytes
Second record of a Scolecomorphus kirkii Boulenger, 1883 (Gymnophiona: Scolecomorphidae) for Mozambique
The herpetofauna of northern Mozambique (Nampula, Niassa, and Cabo Degabo Provinces) remains one of the most poorly-known in Africa. This is a consequence of the physical inaccessibility of the

A new species of chameleon (Sanria: Chamaeleonidae: Kinyongia) from the Magombera forest and the Udzungwa Mountains National Park, Tanzania
Abstract A new species of chameleon Kinyongia magomberae sp. nov. (the Magombera chameleon), is described from Magombera forest and the Vdzungwa Mountains National Park, south-central Tanzania. The
A new species of dwarf chameleon (Sauria; Chamaeleonidae, Bradypodion Fitzinger) from KwaZulu Natal South Africa with notes on recent climatic shifts and their influence on speciation in the genus
TLDR
The molecular patterns of other forest restricted species in KZN were examined with a view to elucidate their patterns of distribution and it is postulated that these patterns may be the result of climatic shifts during the Pleistocene on the extent of forest cover which afforded multiple contact opportunities between coastal and montane forest elements.
A new species of Atheris (Serpentes: Viperidae) from northern Mozambique
A new species of forest viper (Atheris Serpentes: Viperidae) is described from Mount Mabu and Mount Namuli, northern Mozambique. This is the most southerly record of the genus, and the first record
11. The pygmy chameleons of the Eastern Arc Range (Tanzania): evolutionary relationships and the description of three new species of Rhampholeon (Sauria: Chamaeleonidae)
TLDR
The pygmy chameleons of the Eastern Arc Range forests in Tanzania are reviewed on the basis of known and newly collected material and Hypotheses about the evolution of the group in the area are presented.
Six New Species of Occipital-lobed Calumma Chameleons (Squamata: Chamaeleonidae) from Montane Regions of Madagascar, with a New Description and Revision of Calumma Brevicorne
TLDR
The Bemanevika Lakes region of Southwest Tsaratanana harbors a new Calumma species not currently recorded for any protected area, and forest of this region is suggested for inclusion within a future reserve.
A review of the systematics of the genus Bradypodion (Sauria: Chamaeleonidae), with the description of two new genera
TLDR
The combined evidence strongly supports a formal rearrangement of the group into three distinct genera, including Bradypodion, which is retained for the southern African species.
A phylogenetic review of the African leaf chameleons: genus Rhampholeon (Chamaeleonidae): the role of vicariance and climate change in speciation
TLDR
There is a close correlation between geographical distribution and phylogenetic relatedness among Rhampholeon taxa, indicating that vicariance and climate change were possibly the most influential factors driving speciation in the group.
Distribution of Bradypodion taeniabronchum (Smith 1831) and other dwarf chameleons in the eastern Cape Floristic Region of South Africa
TLDR
The next step toward resolving the taxonomy of dwarf chameleons is the inclusion of nuclear DNA markers, in conjunction with a full morphological analysis, because mitochondrial DNA may only indicate historical isolation of lineages, and if used independently, may be a good indicator of species definitions.
Kinyongia asheorum sp. n., a new montane chameleon from the Nyiro Range, northern Kenya (Squamata: Chamaeleonidae)
TLDR
A new species of chameleon is described from the humid montane forests on Mt. Nyiro in northern Kenya based on both the morphology and molecular phylogenetic data, and is placed into the recently described genus Kinyongia.
Biogeographic patterns and phylogeography of dwarf chameleons (Bradypodion) in an African biodiversity hotspot
TLDR
It is suggested that the origins of many present‐day lineages were founded in the Plio–Pleistocene, a time period that corresponds to the reduction of forests in the region and the establishment of the fynbos biome.
