English Names

Congolian Long-fingered Frog (original publication). 


Known with precision only from yhe type locality near Nkala, close to the Congo River, in western Dem. Rep. Congo, as well as on locality in central Dem. Rep. Congro (elevation 515 m);  although only known from these two localities, it is presumably more widely distributed in the Congo Basin, especially in the area south-east of the Congo and Ubangi Rivers. Presumably also extends into adjacent Rep. Congo although not yet recorded there.
