Tusked Frog (Adelotus brevis) by 

Found two more small frogs that I thought might settle the “Uperoleia” issues I was having. Turns out these “lookalikes” are actually Tusked Frog’s Family: Myobatrachidae. These frogs have a mottled dark brown back that is covered with small warts. There is usually a butterfly-shaped marking between the eyes and the arms and legs have dark bands. Bright red patches are located in the groin area and on the back of the legs. Males have very large heads and large ‘tusks’ (tooth-like projections from the lower jaw). The belly of the male is black with white spots, while the female has a marbled black and white belly.

Distinctive belly pattern:
