The Bufonidae, a neobatrachian frog family, are a successful group of anuran Amphibia. The family is cosmopolitan, except for Madagascar and territories (including Australia) east of Wallace’s Line. Fossil bufonids are common in Neogene and Pleistocene localities, but preNeogene reports are rare and all but one record from the Paleocene of Brazil are erroneous or questionable. Here the earliest member of the Bufonidae from the Old World is reported. It was recovered from the Paleocene of France… 

Fossil frogs from the upper Miocene of southwestern Brazilian Amazonia (Solimões Formation, Acre Basin).

ABSTRACT Much of what we know about late Miocene vertebrates from the Brazilian Amazonia is based on the fossil record from several sites in the Solimões Formation. The Talismã site, one of the most

Bufo aff. viridis (Anura: Bufonidae) from the Middle Miocene diatomite of Szurdokpüspöki, northeastern Hungary

The excellently preserved toad fossil was found the Middle Miocene (Badenian) lower freshwaterbrackish diatomite layers in Szurdokpuspoki, Matra Mountains, northern Hungary. This is the first

Late middle Miocene amphibians and squamate reptiles from Taut, Romania

The Taut, herpetofauna differs from those of other coeval localities in the area by its abundance in water preferring amphibian groups, by presence of amphisbaenians and by lack of crocodiles as well.

Abstract Anuran assemblages from the Eocene and Oligocene of the Phosphorites du Quercy (southwestern France) are documented by a modest number of isolated bones, incomplete skulls, and some

Neogene amphibians and reptiles (Caudata, Anura, Gekkota, Lacertilia, and Testudines) from the south of Western Siberia, Russia, and Northeastern Kazakhstan

The Neogene assemblage of Western Siberia was found to be dominated by groups of European affinities, such as Palaeobatrachidae, Bombina, Hyla, Bufo bufo, and a small part of this assemblages included Eastern Palaearctic taxa.

From Toad to Frog, a CT-Based Reconsideration of Bufo servatus, an Eocene Anuran Mummy from Quercy (France)

This result confirms the origin of Thaumastosaurus, a member of the African herpetofauna occupying Western Europe before the Grande Coupure at the Eocene/Oligocene transition and identifies T. servatus as a Natatanuran member of Pyxicephalidae and more precisely, a stem-Pyxicephalinae.

Amphibians and squamate reptiles from the late early Miocene (MN 4) of Béon 1 (Montréal-du-Gers, southwestern France)

The Beon 1 vertebrate locality, formerly known as “Montreal-du-Gers” in southwestern France, has yielded a rich fauna of amphibians and squamate reptiles of late early Miocene (MN 4; Orleanian) age.
