In the course of archaeological studies of one of the caves which make up the Klasies River main site, in the Tsitsikama region of the south coast of South Africa, a sample of collected material, dated to the Late Pleistocene (ca. 90 000 years), has proved to be rich in Anura (frogs). The families Pipidae, Bufonidae, Ranidae and Brevicipitidae are represented, and in addition there is a bone which belongs in the Heleophrynidae and two bones attributable to the Hyperoliidae, and an enigmatic vertebra.
