Comment

Description completed by Amiet, 1972, Ann. Fac. Sci. Cameroun, 9: 127-153. Considered a synonym of Cardioglossa escalerae by Laurent, 1972, Explor. Parc Natl. Virunga, Ser. 2, 22: 37, but this was rejected by Amiet, 1972, Ann. Fac. Sci. Cameroun, 9. See statement of geographic range, habitat, and conservation status in Stuart, Hoffmann, Chanson, Cox, Berridge, Ramani, and Young, 2008, Threatened Amph. World: 610, in the sense of including Cardioglossa inornata as a subspecies.
