Waterfrogs on Sardinia. Kl. esculenta? lessonae? ridibunda?

Comments from Nikolay Tzankov:
The robust head and body (of the big specimen), very small callus internus, grainy skin and spotted ventral side attribute these frogs to R. cf. ridibunda. Additional comments are most welcome. Please email the webmaster.
