Pleistocene cave deposits at Naracoorte, South Australia, have yielded 166 frog ilia assigned to 5 spp. (2 questionably) [Litoria ewingi, Limnodynastes tasmaniensis, Limnodynastes sp. cf. dumerili, Ranidella signifera and Geocrinia sp. cf. laevis] now found in southeastern Australia. They represent the 1st Pleistocene frogs known in Australia. The significance of the absence of any member of the Litoria aurea species complex in the Naracoorte Pleistocene fauna is discussed.
