Wannabe Ranid: Notes on the morphology and natural history of the Lemaire’s Toad (Bufonidae: Sclerophrys lemairii). pp. 439-444.

Abstract. We provide new information regarding the morphology and breeding behaviour of the unusual Lemaire’s Toad (Sclerophrys lemairii) from southeastern Angola. Morphologically, this species shows more external similarities to a typical ‘ranid’ body shape than that of typical bufonids. The call and tadpole are also described for the first time.
Key words: Anura, floodplains, aquatic, dichromatism.
