Abstract: Recent field work in the Udzungwa Mountains of Tanzania has resulted in the discovery of the hitherto unreported nuptial characters of male Arthroleptides martiensseni which are described and illustrated in this contribution. These newly described characters are compared with the nuptial characters of male Arthroleptides dutoiti, a supposedly extinct species from Mount Elgon (Kenya) as well as with members of the West African genus Petropedetes, which exhibit some remarkable morphological and ecological similarities with Arthroleptides martiensseni.
