Incertae Sedis

Dendrobatorana Ahl, 1927 "1926", Sitzungsber. Ges. Naturforsch. Freunde Berlin, 1926112. Type species: Hylambates dorsalis Peters, 1875, by original designation. Comment: See Dubois, 1981, Monit. Zool. Ital., N.S., Suppl., 15: 266, for discussion of the problems of applying this name and identifying the type species (although he and earlier authors [e.g., Laurent, 1972, Copeia, 1972: 201] suggest that it might be a Phrynobatrachus and Morère and Dubois in Dubois, 1987, Alytes, 6: 41, thought it might be a Philautus). See discussion by Ohler, 1999, Mitt. Mus. Naturkd. Berlin, Zool., 75: 37-45, who noted that it is not a member of CardioglossaPhrynobatrachus, or Philautus, and likely is an unknown member of Rhacophorinae (Rhacophoridae of this catalog).

Hylambates dorsalis  Peters, 1875, Monatsber. Preuss. Akad. Wiss. Berlin, 1875: 209. Holotype: ZMB 7730 according to Bauer, Günther, and Klipfel, 1995, in Bauer et al. (eds.), Herpetol. Contr. W.C.H. Peters: 40; type is figured in Plate 3, fig. Type locality: "Yoruba (Lagos)", Nigeria. *Cardioglossa dorsalis— Nieden, 1908, Zool. Anz., 32: 661. * Dendrobatorana dorsalis— Ahl, 1927 "1926", Sitzungsber. Ges. Naturforsch. Freunde Berlin, 1926: 112. * Yoruba Long-fingered Frog (Frank and Ramus, 1995, Compl. Guide Scient. Common Names Amph. Rept. World: 37).See discussion by Ohler, 1999, Mitt. Mus. Naturkd. Berlin, Zool., 75: 37-45, who noted that it is not a member of CardioglossaPhrynobatrachus, or Philautus, and likely is an unknown member of Rhacophorinae (Rhacophoridae of this catalog).
