Lanzarana largeni (common name: Lanza's frog) is a species of frog in the Ptychadenidae family. It is monotypic within the genus Lanzarana. It is endemic to Somalia.[2]

Lanzarana largeni breed in temporary pools and small reservoirs. Outside the breeding season their habitats are poorly known but probably are dry savanna and semi-arid habitats. There does not appear to be major threats to this species.[1]
