Abstract

Limnonectes shompenorum, a new species of ranid of the Rana macrodon complex, from Great Nicobar Island, India, is described. Limnonectes shompenorum can be differentiated from congeners of the species complex by a combination of the following characters: a head that is narrower than the body, and longer than broad; interorbital distance greater than the upper eyelid width; fingers with movable dermal fringe; tips of fingers weakly swollen; finger 4 longer than finger 2; completely webbed toes; presence of a dark, horizontal loreal stripe; absence of the inverted V-shaped fold on the scapular region; and partially pigmented eggs.
