We describe a new species of dainty frog in the genus (Ranidae) from East Africa. It is similar morphologically to from the interior of southern Africa, and is distinguished on the basis of an advertisement call with double or treble pulsed notes. Skeletal and DNA sequence differences support the species status of this taxon. It is known from northern Tanzania and the highlands of Kenya.
