The type of "Leptopelis barbouri" (common name: Barbour's forest treefrog) was in 2014 shown to be conspecific with "Leptopelis flavomaculatus", bringing the former into synonymy with the latter. Arthur Loveridge had considered "Leptopelis barbouri" to be synonym of "Leptopelis aubreyi", but in 1975 resurrected it as a valid species. However, in literature between 1975 and 2014, name "Leptopelis barbouri" has been used for altogether different species that is now known as "Leptopelis grandiceps", and which until 2014 was considered a synonym of "Leptopelis
". In other words, even though "Leptopelis barbouri" is synonym of "Leptopelis flavomaculatus", pre-2014 literature on "Leptopelis barbouri" actually refers to "Leptopelis grandiceps".
