From 1962 through 1965 various members of the Faculty of Science of Haile Sellassie I University accumulated a series of amphibian specimens from Ethiopia. Except for duplicate specimens which are housed in the Biology Department of Haile Sellassie I University, the collection has been deposited in the Field Museum of Natural History, Chicago, Illinois. Because the species, distribution, and ecology of amphibians of Ethiopia are poorly known, an obvious need exists for papers, large and small, that deal with Ethiopian frogs, toads, and caecilians. Hence, I present below specific comments on this collection.
