Abstract: An identification function key is given for the discrimination of two water frog forms (Rana lessonae - Rana esculenta population) in the Szigetköz Landscape Protection Area. Distribution pattern of morphometric characters of the two water frog forms represented normal distribution, except inner metatarsal tubercle for both forms and first toe length for female Rana esculenta specimens. Considerable correlations were found both between body length and tibia length and between tibia length and first toe length for the two water frog forms.Keywords:
