Abstract

Anatolian mountain frogs (Rana macrocnemis, Rana camerani, Rana holtzi, and Rana tavasensis) are one of the most specious amphibian groups in Turkey containing two endemic taxa (R. holtzi and R. tavasensis). The taxonomy of this group remains controversial as there are several unresolved issues.
