Stoliczka's (1873) Mocoa macrotympanum, known from the holotype collected over 120 years ago from the Andaman Islands, India, is redescrihed on the basis of two specimens from Little and Great Nicobar Islands. India. The species is diagnosed by: small body size (SVL up to 38.1 mm); tympanum exposed; disk on lower eyelid translucent; prefrontals separate; the failure of the adpressed hind limbs to meet the fore limbs; 21- 23 smooth midbody scale rows; 15-17 subdigital scansors under toe IV; three pairs of nuchals; four supraoculars; seven supralabials (supralabial V in midorbit position); six infralabials; and lateral bands starting from the nostrils.
