Roy Kleukers

In this major work the Balkan species of Isophya are critically reviewed, with a revision of the modesta -group. Isophya leonorae and I. petkovi are  placed as subspecies to I. rhodopensis .  Furthermore five new synonymies are established.  In the new list 21 species are recognised to occur on the Balkans. A key, tables, bioacoustic information and many illustrations are provided for identification purposes and for all species a distribution map is presented.
