The three modern orders of amphibians are Anura (that are the frogs and toads), Urodela (the salamanders), and Apoda (the caecilians, a group of legless amphibians). The number of known amphibian species is more than 8,000, of which nearly 90% are frogs. Of these the largest genus of frogs, which is also the largest genus of all vertebrates, is the Eleutherodactylus, also commonly known as the ‘rain frogs’ or the ‘tink frogs’.
