We provide a list of amphibians from a Submontane Forest remnant in Urussanga municipality, Santa Catarina, southern of  Brazil. We sampling through visual and acoustic surveys in four distinct sites. Twenty-six species of anurans belonging to nine families were recorded, where nine species were rare, nine abundant, and eight common. Eleven reproductive modes were observed, with exotrophic tadpoles in still water (mode 1) being most frequent mode (38%). The period of highest vocalization activity occurred between October and January. Temperature, rainfall and air humidity were not correlated with the richness and abundance of calling males. Only photoperiod was positively correlated with the abundance of calling males and species richness.
