We describe a new species of torrent-dwelling bufonid frog of the genus Ansonia from northern Thailand. Ansonia inthanon is morphologically similar to Indian members of the genus but differs from them in ventral coloration and skin texture. Occurrence of this species in this region connects disjunctly distributed congeners from southern India and the Malay Peninsula and Borneo.
Key words: Ansonia new species; Ansonia ornata; Zoogeography; Thailand; India
Holotype: THNHM 51-001.
Type locality: "Siriphum waterfall, Doi Inthanon National Park (98° 32´ E, 18° 33´ N, altitude 1350 m) in Thailand".
