Here we describe the tadpoles of Theloderma gordoni. These tadpoles can be distinguished from other members of the genus Theloderma by having the combination of the following characters: total length (50.1–54.5 mm, stages 28–33); tail shape (abdominal and dorsal fins with a gradual tapering toward the anterior and posterior portions, without an abrupt tapering in the posterior portion); number of marginal papillae in one row on the oral disc (51–55); degree of pigmentation (body dorsally and ventrally practically black, with a slight bluish tint). We also include a comparative analysis and thorough review of tadpole descriptions of other Theloderma.
