Abstract: Updated systematic and taxonomic status of Bulgarian amphibians currently comprises 23 nominal species (24 taxa). Eight tailed and 15 tailless amphibian species are listed. For each taxa, important clarification and explanation notes are presented. As well, future challenges and prospects are denoted. There are still many phylogeographic questions to be resolved and contacts between closely related taxa to be studied. More notably for two groups at present a precise systematic definition could not be given, e.g. Bufotes viridis complex and Pelophylax ridibundus complex.
