“We provisionaly attribute these specimens D. cf. weileiri, although they clearly represent an undescribed species. They differ from typical D. weileiri from Cameroon, Gabon and Congo both by habitat (savanna for all our specimens, central African rainforest block for D. weileri) and colouration in life (dorsum green versus blackish respectively) and in preservative (underside of the tail whitish or pale blue grey versus blackish respectively). In life, the supralabials of our specimens were bright yellow, the belly pale yellow, and the underside of the tail pale yellow or pale greenish. However, we were unable to find clear meristic differences between this undescribed species and D. weileri.” (TRAPE & BALDÉ 2014)
