The protozoan parasites of Bulgarian Amphibians (7 species of order Anura) and Reptiles (6 species of order Squamata) were studied. Totally 11 protozoan parasites are observed. Entamoeba invadens Rodhain, 1934; (H: Lacerta muralis (Laur.) and L. viridis (Laur.)), Trihodina urinaria Fulton, 1916 (H.: Rana ridibunda (Pall.)) and 3 forms of the widely spread polymorphic species Opalina ranarum Ehrenberg, 1831, (namely: O. ranarum f. truncata Metcalf, 1923 (H.: R. temporaria (L.)), O. ranarum f. parvipalmata Metcalf, 1923 (H.: R. temporaria (L.)) and O. ranarum f. lata, Metcalf, 1923 (H.: Bufo viridis (Laur.)) are new to the Bulgarian protozoan fauna.
