Abstract: The late Devensian/early Flandrian Cow Cave Site, Chudleigh, Devon, yielded a herpetofauna consisting of Bufo bufo, Bufo calamita. Rana temporaria, Anguis fragilis, and Vipera berus. This is a depauperate 'Rana-Bufo' fossil assemblage with Rana comprising 20 per cent and Buja 77 per cent of the fauna. The endangered species Bufo calamira is reported for the first time as a fossil from Devon and for the second time only as a British fossil.
