Abstract

The Trustees have recently received from Dr. T. L. Bancroft several very interesting consignments of Reptiles and Batrachians, collected at Eidsvold on the Burnett River, Queensland. Amongst those deserving special attention are the two species here mentioned, a rare frog, Hyla latopalmata, Günther, and a new variety of Varanus punctatus, Gray, which is described as var. orientalis.

The collections also include a large series of a strikingly coloured form of Limnodynastes dorsalis, Gray, and it has been thought best to deal with them in conjunction with a detailed account of the distribution and variation of this widely distributed frog.

A list of the Reptiles and Batrachians from the Burnett River District has been published in Semon's "Zoologische Forschungsreisen in Australiens" by Drs. Böttger and Oudemans. They record forty-two species, twenty-five of which are represented in Dr. Bancroft's collections, together with the following, which up till the present were not recorded from the district.
