Conservation status in Cameroon.

This taxon, D. felicis   , has not yet been assessed for the IUCN Red List. This species was assessed by Onana and Cheek (2011) as Critically Endangered since known from a single collection at the time. The species is most likely extinct at the type locality, Djinga   Mts, Admmoua, north-western Cameroon. There are two other localities for the species, Juafef waterfall, where a hotel has been built, which is visited by many tourists coming into that area of Cameroon; and the other Anyajua waterfall is in an agricultural landscape, all in NW Cameroon ( Ghogue et al. 2009). The extent of occurrence and area of occupancy are both estimated at 4 km2 each. Tourism and agricultural activities will adversely affect the habitat of the species. D. felicis   is, therefore, reassessed currently as Critically Endangered. IUCN Red List Category: Critically Endangered CRB1+2ab (iii).
