The tadpole of Leptopelis cf. grandiceps is described from the Uluguru Mountains of Tanzania. The tadpole resembles other Leptopelis tadpoles but differs from known East African Leptopelis tadpoles in having a divided first row (P1) of infralabial keratodonts and in having more and longer oral papillae. There are furthermore pronounced differences in oral apparatus morphology between tadpoles of L. cf. grandiceps previously described from the Ukaguru Mountains and the material described here, which might indicate that the populations are in fact separate species. Tadpole morphology can provide additional characters that can contribute to taxonomic assessments and revisions.
