Family: Bufonidae
Name: Nectophrynoides tornieri
Geographic Range: This species occurs in the Usambara, Uluguru, Nguru, Ukaguru, Mahenge and Udzungwa Mountains, and on Mount Rungwe, in eastern and southern Tanzania. It occurs from 300m (Kimboza Forest in the Uluguru foothills) up to at least 1,800m asl. This species will probably be eventually found throughout the Eastern Arc mountain chain. Some records from the West Usambara Mountains, and some of the specimens from the Uluguru Mountains, which are both included here, probably represent two undescribed species. AFRICA Habitat: It lives in lowland and montane forest, and is found low in the vegetation and on the ground. It can tolerate some disturbance to its habitat, and can survive in banana plantations, but probably not in very open areas Reproductive Mode: III, I.

IUCN Status: Least concern.
