To elucidate mtDNA differentiation in the Japanese brown frog <i>Rana japonica</i>, and compare it with results from allozyme analysis and crossing experiments, RFLP analysis was conducted on 78 frogs from 16 populations in Honshu. Purified mtDNA was digested with eight six-base recognizing restriction enzymes and analyzed by 1% agarose-slab gel electrophoresis. Cleavage patterns of the mtDNA showed three distinct genome size classes: small (18.5 kb), middle (20.0 kb) and large (21.5 kb). Ten haplotypes (I~X) were observed among the 16 populations. The expected nucleotide divergences within populations ranged from 0 to 0.47% with a mean of 0.08%. The net nucleotide divergences among 16 populations ranged from 0 to 7.74% with a mean of 3.49%. The UPGMA dendrogram and NJ tree, which were constructed based on the net nucleotide divergences, showed that <i>R. japonica</i> diverged first into the eastern and western groups. The eastern group subsequently differentiated into a subgroup containing six populations and the Akita population, and the western group divided into several subgroups. These results, as well as the results of allozyme analysis and crossing experiments, suggest that the eastern and western groups have experienced secondary contact, and introgression has occurred in the Akita population.<br>
