AbstractA biometrical analysis of preserved specimens of Bufo bufo, supplemented by a detailed examination of the shape of the skin warts, was performed in order to ascertain the taxonomic status of the form described as B.b.spinosus. Indications of a N.-S. clinal variation in the formation of wart thorns and in allometric relations of body elements were found. The validity of the form as a distinct subspecies seems accordingly very doubtful.
