Leptobrachella melanoleuca, Masafumi Matsui, 2006

Leptolalax melanoleucus is a frog species in the family Megophryidae. It is endemic to Thailand, although it has a relatively wide distribution near the Burmese border from the Khlong Saeng Wildlife Sanctuary (the type locality) in the central peninsular Thailand northwards to the vicinity of Pilok in Thong Pha Phum District, southwestern mainland Thailand; it is expected to be found in Burma. The type collection consists of three males measuring 27 - 29 mm in snout-vent length and a single female at 33 mm SVL. Males can be found calling at night near small streams.
