|Abstract:||Stream type tadpoles of Bufo, hitherto unknown from Japan, were discovered in the source area of Mt. Ohdaigahara, Nara Prefecture, and at the upper streams of the Neo-Nishitani River, Gifu Prefecture. These tadpoles live in torrents and are well adapted to a life in running water. They are morphologicaliy different from ordinary tadpoles of still water type, and seem to resemble the tadpole of B. b. andrewsi reported from South China, lt is highly probable that this type of toad can be recognized as a new separate form, but its taxonomic position has not yet been determined.
