(95 III. List of the Reptiles and Batrachians of South Africa, with Descriptions of New Species. By W. L. SCLATER, M.A., F.Z.S., Director. (With Plate V.) THE following list of Eeptiles has been compiled from Mr. Boulenger's catalogues of the British Museum collection, to which in each case a reference has been given, as "well as to the original author of the specific name. The species described since the publication of the catalogues have been added in their proper places, together with the reference to the original description. The definition of South Africa as used in this list is Africa south of the Cunene Eiver on the west, and of the Zambesi on the east, and therefore includes the whole of German South-West Africa, that part of the Chartered Company's territory and of Portuguese East Africa which lies south of the Zambesi, the Eepublics, and the Colonies. On the whole this forms the most convenient boundary for our purpose, as it corresponds to what is politically considered to be included in South Africa, and although not a natural faunistic boundary, is easier to deal with than the tropic of Capricorn, which is the one often adopted. Following the list will be found descriptions of a new r species of Snake, Lizard, and Frog, the latter necessitating the formation of a new genus ; these specimens have been compared with their nearest allies in the British Museum, and my best thanks are due to Mr. Boulenger for great help and assistance in this matter. The following table shows the number of types or cotypes in the South African Museum, and the numbers of species in the Museum as compared with the total number found in South Africa.
