We discuss generalized geographical range patterns for the 24 anuran species that occur in the Kakamega Forest, western Kenya. Eight distributions are distinguished: from "western Equatorial Rift Valley" to almost entire sub-Saharan. The former may be more common than previously assumed, because some species displaying this geographical range pattern were only recently identified out of species complexes with large distributions. In contrast, continuous distributions of species over the Congo basin may be less common than currently understood.
