Unknown toad from Morocco

Postby Michael Widmer » Thu Jul 04, 2019 1:20 pm

Ten years ago, in April 2009, we found these young toads in the Anti-Atlas near Col de Kerdous. Could somebody help me with the identification (if it is possible)? It must be one of these two species Bufotes boulengeri or Barbarophryne brongersmai

Thank you in advance

I would advice you to find Wouter Beukema on FB and ask him. But it's a tough question.

very hard to tell, but freshly metamorphed Bufotes boulengeri looked much more contrasting. These are from a small creek between Tiznit and Mirleft.


and this is an adult from the corner of the Erg Chebby dunes
