We redescribe the tadpole of Phlyctimantis boulengeri Perret, 1986 based on specimens from Taï National park, Ivory Coast. The tadpoles resemble very much those of the genus Kassina. We found no hints for arboreal spawning, as described by Guibé & Lamotte (1958) for this species. Eggs were laid singly below the surface of water. Adults showed a conspicuous defence behaviour.
