Abstract

A new species in the genus Vibrissaphora was found during a 2003 survey of the southern part of Yunnan Province, China. The new species appears intermediate between the genera Vibrissaphora and Leptobrachium. Unlike other species of Vibrissaphora, it has a small body size similar to L. chapaense, but has spines on each side of the upper lip characteristic of Vibrissaphora. The spines are much smaller and more numerous than are those of any species of Vibrissaphora, including the sympatric V. ailaonica.
