Then in 2016 Amietophrynus was renamed to Sclerophrys following museum specimen detective work by Ohler and Dubois.
I couldn't find enough information about the toads in this area to identify this guy until I got a copy of Channing and Howell's recent guide to East African Amphibians. Amietophrynus gutturalis is similar, but the shape of the paratoid glands and the size of the tympanum makes me think this is A. maculatus.
On the other hand, Stephen Spawls's recent guide to herps of Maasai Mara lists S. gutturalis as known to be present in the park and S. maculata only as suspected to be present.
Thanks to Ghana frog expert Caleb Ofori Boateng for identifying this toad.
