Three currently recognized species of Anatolian mountain frogs were analyzed for species boundaries. Meristic and proportional measurement data of three populations, including two topotypical ones, were evaluated using both univariate and discriminant analyses, and blood-serum samples were analyzed electrophoretically with polyacrylamide-disc electrophoresis. The results indicate that only two distinct mountain frog species inhabit Anatolia. We recommend that R. camerani from Mt Erciyes should be recognized as a synonym of R. macrocnemis.
