MATERIAL AND METHODS Material examined is deposited in the Natural History Mu- seum, British Museum, London (BMNH), Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle, Genéve (MHNG), Museum fur Naturkunde, Berlin (ZMHB), Muséum Royal de TAfrique Centrale, Tervuren (MRAC), and Zoologisches For- schungsinstitut und Museum Alexander Koenig, Bonn (ZFMK). Specimens used for comparisons are listed in Appendix 1. Live specimens were fotographed in the field for colour descriptions before preserving them in 70 % ethanol. Measurements were taken in mm at the nearest 0.1 mm with dial callipers for adults only. Males were consid- ered adult when their guiar flap was recognisable; speci- mens of about equal size to males without guiar flap were regarded as adult females. Specimens smaller than half snout-vent-length (SVL) of the smallest adult, were termed juveniles. The diagnostic scheme follows Lötters et al. (2004): (1) SVL of males and females; (2) tibia length (TIBLVSVL, head width at angles of jaws (HW)/SVL; (3) dorsal skin texture: smooth or warty; (4) dorsal and lateral snout shape fide Heyer et al. (1990: 409) and if nostrils are visible from above or not; (5) distance from anterior comer of eye to nostril (E-N)/horizontal eye diameter (EYE); (6) tympanum: visible or invisible (i.e. covered by thick skin), horizontal tympanum diameter (TYMP)/EYE; (7) foot length from proximal edge of outer metatarsal tu- bercle to tip of Toe IV (F00T)/T1BL; (8) foot and (if pre- sent) hand webbing formula, using the system as described by Glaw & Vences (1994); (9) dorsal and ventral colour patte
