Comments
Nomen dubium. The taxonomic validity of this species is questionable. The type has been lost and it is known only from the type locality of "Vulkangebiet nordöstlich des Kivu-Sees" (the volcano region north-east of Lake Kivu), which lies on the boundary between the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda (Ahl 1931). Hyperolius raveni is probably a synonym of Hyperolius kivuensis.
