Abstract:

The Green Toad of Cyprus differs from that of Europe, by high abundance of specimens with light vertebral line, by greater body-size, as well as by long and large parotids. Therefore, it does not belong to B. viridis viridis, which inhabits Europe and Western Siberia USSR. Neither is it an endemic, insular subspecies of B. viridis. The Cypriot population represents the subspecies B. viridis arabicus Heyden, which inhibits Southwest Asia.
