The shape and size of spermatozoa of 11 frog species from India and Sri Lanka were examined by scanning electron microscopy. The spermatozoa of the genera Limnonectes and Euphlyctis were of the generalized type with a thick sperm head and a thin tail, whereas Indirana semipalmata had peculiar spermatozoa with a densely coiled sperm head and a thick tail. Rhacophorus microtympanum is likely to belong to the genus Philautus from sperm morphology. The spermatozoa of Microhyla ornata and Ramanella obscura were very similar, with a cone-shaped sperm head and a thin tail.
