  • 63 species and subspecies of amphibians belonging to 19 genera,9 families and 2 orders have been collected in Guizhou province.There are 2 new provincial records,Rana latouchii and Rhacophorus cavirostris.A zoogeographical analysis of the amphibians fauna shows that it consists of five kinds of elements:Central Chinese elements,Central and Southern Chinese elements,Southwestplateau elements,Southern Chinese elements and Palaearctic and Oriental elements.It is suggested that with respect to its amphibians fauna,Guizhou may be further divided into five faunal provinces.In the western faunal province the Southwest-plateau elements are dominant.It belongs to Southwestern China region.In the northern and southeastern faunal provinces the Central Chinese elements are dominant.They belong to Central China region.In the central faunal province the Central and Southern Chinese elements are dominant.It belongs to Central China region.In the southern faunal province the Central and Southern Chinese elements are dominant.The region belonging to Central China region is considered to be a transitional zone between the Central Chinese and the Southern Chinese region.The similar degree of the amphibians among five faunal province has been calculated.
