Oldham's leaf turtle (Cyclemys oldhamii) is a species of turtle in the family Geoemydidae.
Both the specific name, oldhamii, and the common name, Oldham's leaf turtle, are in honor of English plant collector Richard Oldham (1837-1864).
C. oldhamii is found in Bangladesh, in the terai of mizoram, in Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, W Borneo, Sumatra and Java. In addition, Cyclemys oldhami shanensis - sometimes considered a distinct species due to its shell pattern, oft described as looking similar to aged meat - occurs from central Myanmar to Thailand and Cambodia. The type locality was originally given as "Mergui and Siam", and restricted to Mergui by Smith (1931).
A case of hybridization between a male Cyclemys (oldhamii) shanensis and a female Chinese stripe-necked turtle has been described.
