dc.description.abstractTHE VARSWATER FORMATION AT Langebaanweg, Western Cape Province, South Africa, is known particularly for its Late Miocene-Early Pliocene mammalian and abundant avian fossils. Amphibian bones from the site are, like the avian bones, notable for their variety, surpassed in numbers of families and genera by no site in Africa and few sites in the world. The bones were transported by a river system from a variety of habitats and include those of swimmers, hoppers, leapers, burrowers and probably also climbers and torrent-associated climbers/swimmers. The fossil evidence indicates the presence of at least four anuran families and possibly as many as seven genera in six families.
