Abstract: The Swanton Morley Ipswichian site yielded fossils of Bufo bufo, Rana arvalis arvalis, Rana temporaria, Rana sp. indet ., Emys orbicularis, and Natrix natrix. This is the first British fossil record of Rana arvalis arvalis which today occurs in the European low countries adjacent to England. A second continental form, Emys orbicularis, has previously been reported from the site. The nearest to Swanton Morley t hat these herpetological species could be found living to get her today would be in the Mecklenburg District of northern East Germany.
