on the island Simalur by Edw JACOBSON; on the island Nias by J P Kleiweg DE Zwaan on Celebes by W KAUDERN; on Ceram by L F de Beaufort and L Rutten; on Buru by L J ToxOPEUS; on Waigeu by L F DE BEAUFORT dispose of extensive material collected in Sumatra ; These collectors deserve our thanks for contributing materially to the study of indian Amphibia We are under particular obligations to Dr K W Dammerman, Director of the Zoological Museum sending under his control; as also to Prof E D VAN OORT, Director and of Dr Th W VAN LlDTH DE Jeude, Curator of the Museum at Leiden, for the facilities given for studying the Amphibia under for study the Amphibia at Buitenzorg, for in the institution their charge In bringing this interested in volume before the public, those who are fauna of the Dutch East Indies the vertebrate be congratulated, that Prof, van Kampen presented to the study of the Amphibia of the Archipelago The discussion, at the end of the volume, of the distribution of the species on the various islands of the Archipelago and on the neighbouring continents of Asia and Australia, will be of much interest to students of zoogeography It is also a pleasure to acknowledge the interest of the publisher, the firma E J Brill, Ltd of Leiden, while this volume went through the press are to them with an able guide Prof Max Weber, Late Director of the Zoological of the University of Museum Amsterdam INTRODUCTION The great known from increase of the known from that region number of species of Amphibians which has taken place the Dutch East especially since the beginning of this century, seems to make a critical compilation of the very dispersed literature on this subject not superfluous In the present work I have given descriptions with synoptic tables of all Amphibians and tadpoles In Indies, confining its boundaries I followed the authors of the works on Fishes and Reptiles of this same series in extending them a little beyond the Dutch Archipelago So I included the whole of Borneo, Timor and New Guinea and also the island Pelawan, the fauna of which is closely related to that of Borneo, and the Bismarck archipelago, Solomon islands and a few other islands, which show the same affinity to New behind the name of a locality means that I have Guinea A ! seen one or more specimens from that locality For each species I cited only the more important literature, those papers in which further ones are quoted and those which contain synonymes or figures Papers issued before 1882, f i well-known Catalogue of Boulenger, as a rule are not mentioned, except those which the year of publication of the contain original descriptions here a short explication of the manner used I must add by me in taking the measures In the description of the adult with length I mean, if not otherwise stated, the disfrom the tip of the snout to the posterior end of the body The measures given are the largest ones which are known In measuring the length of the head I take the distance from the tip of the snout to the posterior border of the skull in the median line; its width is measured at the point, where the head is broadest, i e usually at its posterior end The length of the snout is taken from its tip to the anterior border animals tance VIII of the upper eyelid, depth its is the vertical distance between canthus rostralis and mouth, measured at the anterior border of the upper eyelid The width of the interorbital space is the the smallest distance between the upper eyelids tympanum measured along is In the tadpoles the zvidtli of the snout to the length of the its depth taken at is The number mula, its of series ! f i the tail is 3 / ' ' The size of greatest diameter of the body taken is in its broadest is meant the distance from the point of origin of the hind limbs; part; with length of the body tip its measured from this point to its tip, highest point, both crests included of horny teeth signifies: is indicated by a for- four series in the upper, three lower lip, the three lower (inner) ones of upper lip and the upper (inner) one of lower lip each being divided into two portions by a median interruption I wish to direct the attention of collectors on the fact, that only very few tadpoles of Indo-Australian Anura are the in known at present In collecting tadpoles, however, it is necessary (when it is impossible to rear them) to collect material of young and full-grown frogs at the same locality; otherwise the tadpoles usually fluid for I cannot be determined The best preservation tadpoles is have to express valuable assistance in formol my thanks to Prof many points I Max Weber am much for his indebted also to : Mr Th Barbour, Dr G A Boulenger, Prof L Dollo, Mr C Boden Kloss, Prof L Roule, Dr J Roux, Mr Malc Smith, Dr Th Vogt, Prof F Werner for useful mations and the sending of specimens for examination Leiden, July 1923 P N infor- VAN Kampen SYSTEMATIC INDEX AMPHIBIA Page Page I Gymnophiona Order Family Caeciliidae i Ichthyophis Fitz glutinosus (L.) monochrous (Blkr.)
