The Villafranchian anurans of Jebel Irhoud ("Ocre" quarry) Morocco, belong to the Discoglossidae (Baleaphryne), Bufonidae (Bufo cf. B. viridis, Bufo cf. B. regularis) and Ranidae (Rana sp.). The presence of Pelodytidae (Pelodytes) in this site is possible but not ascertained. The genus Baleaphryne is reported for the first time in Africa. Likewise, Pelodytes, if this identification proves correct, would be the first one ever found in Africa.
