Abstract:Some taxonomic problems of the genera Batrachuperus, Liua and Hynobius are discussed, including synonym etc. Based on detail discussion on characters of some species, the author considers that there are five species belonging to the genus Batrachuperus, i.e. B. pinchonii, B. tibetanus, B. karlschmidti, B. yenyuanensis and B. longdongensis. Liua Zhao and Hu, 1983 is a valid genus. Hynobius yiwuensis Cai, 1985 is a synonym of H. chinensis Gunther, 1889. Pseudohynobius flavomaculatus Fei and Ye, 1982 is a synonym of Ranodon tsinpaensis Liu and Hu, 1966. Xenobius melanonychus Zhang and Hu, 1985 may be a valid species and should be revised after detailed studying.
