Abstract Share this page

We report on the amphibian fauna of the Yakassé-Mé village forest, south-eastern Ivory Coast. We recorded a total of 24 frog species. These frogs are typical for the rainforest and degraded rainforest habitats of this region. Some species which we expected, but were lacking from our records include the regional endemics Astylosternus laticephalus, Hyperolius viridigulosus, Morerella cyanophthalma, Phrynobatrachus ghanensis. Although the Yakassé-Mé village forest is only a relatively small forest remnant, we urge for its future protection as it represents an important refuge for the forest fauna in the south-east of Ivory Coast, where only few forests persisted until today.
