Author(s): Quaynat Nisha Mansoori and Vinita R Kashyap

Abstract:
Rewa district is gifted with lot of wetlands significantly Bichhiya, Bihar and Tamas wetland is home of 12 amphibian species under 5 family. Of which 1 species belonged to family Bufonid, 2 species to family microhylid, 1 species to family Rhacophorid, 6 species to family Dicroglossidae and 2 species to Ranidae. Morphometric study was carried out for Duttaphrynus melanotic. Significant variation was observed in the morphometric characteristics of D. melanotic with its Lectotype. Supratympanic fold was found to be present and parietal ridge is absent in case of specimens of Rewa, while vice versa in Lectotype. Webbing formula found to be I0-1II0-1½III1-3½IV3½-1½ in case of lectotype, where as in the specimens from Rewa it is I1-1½ II1½-2½ III1½-3½ IV3½-1½.
