The South African Institute for Aquatic Biodiversity is the custodian of an amphibian collection. The collection consists of about 1 500 lots of frog specimens from southern Africa. As well as adult and larval specimens preserved in propanol and ethanol, the collection and associated material consists of preparations of genetic material, otoliths, radiographs and photographs. About 180 species in 15 families are represented in the collection. Frog specimens and fish specimens (which are in a separate collection) share a collection code (SAIAB) and are numbered in the same sequence of integer-type catalogue numbers
