Amietophrynus djohongensis is a species of toad in the family Bufonidae. It is endemic to the Adamawa Plateau in north-central Cameroon.[1][2] It was originally described as a subspecies of Bufo funereus (now Amietophrynus funereus).[2] It might even be a junior synonym of Amietophrynus villiersi.[1]

The species' natural habitats are gallery forests in montane grassland and wooded savanna landscapes. A rarely recorded species, it probably suffers from habitat degradation caused by agriculture, overgrazing by livestock, wood extraction, fire, and human settlement.[1]
