 Ansonia tiomanica is a species of toad in the Bufonidae family native to Malaysia. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, rivers, inland karsts, and caves. It is threatened by habitat loss, and is classified as vulnerable by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species because it is known from only one location on Tioman Island, Malaysia.
