Comment

Schmidt and Inger, 1959, Explor. Parc Natl. Upemba, Miss. G.F. de Witte, 56: 127 (on the basis of a huge sample) considered Arthroleptis muta and Arthroleptis lameeri to be synonyms (and juveniles) of Arthroleptis globosa, an arrangement doubted by Laurent, 1964, Publ. Cult. Companhia Diamantes Angola, 67: 146. Channing, 2001, Amph. Cent. S. Afr.: 50, provided a brief account. Frétey, 2008, Alytes, 25: 99-172, summarized the literature.
