Bastar is the southernmost civil division of Chhattisgarh state in India. Amphibian fauna of this sparsely populated tribal division is poorly known. The present piece of work has mainly been focused to tabulate the amphibian fauna of Indravati Basin so as to provide a base line data for more intensive studies of this group in the basin, lying mostly in the southern part of Chhattisgarh state. The present study evidenced 16 species belonging to 10 genera and 5 families of the order Anura from the Indravati basin. Habitats of each observed species has been briefed and in some cases the apparent morphological divergences have also been discussed.
