We determined DNA sequences of the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene for 44 specimens of the common frog, Rana temporaria parvipalmata, from 14 localities in Galicia, northwestern Spain. We found a low differentiation among all studied individuals, with a maximum of four mutational steps between haplotypes, including those from the southernmost isolated populations on the Manzaneda-Queixa and Trevinca-Segundeira massifs which thus probably originated by a rather recent colonization and likely maintained intermittent gene flow to more northern populations during climatically colder, glacial periods with a higher habitat connectivity.
