Abstract

A poorly known Tamdil Leaf-litter Frog Leptobrachella tamdil was collected from Tuilut stream in Dampa Tiger Reserve, Mizoram, which represents the third specimen for the species after the original description a decade ago.  This report extends the species distribution range to ca. 59km west from the type locality, and also provides additional data on the morphometry with notes on the natural habitat.
