Abstract


Bombina bombina has been known only around Adapazarı until now. We have determined that they also occur in the other parts of Thrace based on, new specimens collected from Enez and Terkos. We extend the distributional range of known localities for Bombina bombina and discusses specific subspecies relationship of Bombina from Thrace.
