Listed 39 species of frogs have with few exceptions a very wide distribution, but are principally inhabitants of the eastern and southern portion of the Australian continent. Of the west and north-west coast we know as yet little or nothing. It is probable, however, that when these regions are better explored by naturalists many more new genera and species will be discovered, and I am confident to see our Batrachio-fauna numbering more than a hundred species a few years hence.
