The tadpole of Hyperolius mitchelli is descriptionbed. The specimens on which this descriptionption is based were reared in captivity from adults caught at Amani, Tanzania. These tadpoles possess rostral papillae, which together with a curtain of lingual papillae are characteristic of the species. Too few Hyperolius tadpoles have yet been descriptionbed to present a diagnosis or identification key to the genus.
