Species name:   Ptychadena oxyrhynchus -- Sharpnosed Grass Frog
Species code:   810
Comment number:   2
By:   Darren Pietersen
Comment:   Numerous short, broken skin ridges (rather then six continuous skin ridges) indicates Amietia rather than Ptychadena. Sharp nose and pale stripe along the upper lip that does project between the eye and tympanum suggests A. delalandii rather than A. poyntoni.
