Abstract: The late Pleistocene fissure deposits near Ightham, Kent, have yielded the remains of Triturus sp., Buja bujo, Buja calamita, Rana temporaria. Anguisjragilis, Natrix natrix. Coronella austriaca, and Vipera berus. These are the first British fossil records of the British endangered species Buja calamita and Coronella austriaca, and the first record of any Kind of Coronella austriaca from Kent. Rana temporaria comprises 87 per cent of the minimum number of individuals of the fossil fauna. I t is postulated that the fossil amphibians and reptiles accumulated during the early Flandrian Stage when the temperature first became as warm as it is in southern England today.
