Recent investigations have confirmed the presence of Isophya kraussi in the Carpathian mountains. Based on acoustic analysis and morphological characters, the populations from NE Romania are considered to belong to a different subspecies, I. kraussii moldavica .

Records of Isophya kraussi. Black dots: Isophya kraussii kraussii ; white dots: I. kraussii moldavica , triangles: records of I. pyrenaea (most probably I. kraussii ).
