(In Thai: งูงอดเลย, ngu ngod Loei)
Oligodon deuvei is a species of colubrid snake. It is found in Cambodia, southern Vietnam, and Laos; it is expected to occur in northeastern Thailand. The species differs from other known species of its group by the combination of 12–15 maxillary teeth, 17 dorsal scale rows at its midbody, approximately seven supralabials, the absence of dorsal and tail blotches, and the presence of a single vertebral black stripe, which is usually orange or red. O. deuvei is most similar to Oligodon barroni, but differs from the latter by having more maxillary teeth and its absence of dorsal and tail marks.
