We saw quite a few of these frogs sleeping on the rushes in the Okavango delta. They were highly variable in color pattern but I believe they were all H. marmoratus. - https://www.herpmapper.org/voucher/39155/full.jpg

I presume this is another alboguttatus, but I put it in a separate entry because it looked quite different from the other males present (http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/2633421).

Both sexes. These were at a little pool next to our hotel in town, but I can't remember exactly where in town it was.
