Abstract
30 species of amphibians were reported during a survey belonging to 19 genera of 9 families and 2 orders from Rewa district, Madhya Pradesh, India, during June 2019 to May 2022. Out of 28 species recorded, 18 species are endemic to Bahuti fall. All of the tehsils in this district except Bahuti fall under semi-arid zone having rich amphibian diversity. Nigari tehsil is flanked by Bahuti fall with high rainfall and humidity harboring highest number of species, while Samaria tehsils is a drought prone zone with the lowest number of species. Time constrained visual encounter survey (VES) method was used for sampling amphibians from all possible habitats of the study area.
