English Names

None noted.

Distribution

Known only from the region of the type locality (O'Rang District, Mondolkiri Province, Cambodia) and from there 300 km north to the Ngoc Linh Mountain, Quang Nam Province, Vietnam (therefore presumably found through the entire Truong Son/Annamite range).

Comment

Bain and Nguyen, 2006, Herpetol. Rev., 37: 358, provide the record for Vietnam. Stuart, Rowley, Tran, Le, and Hoang, 2011, Zootaxa, 2804: 36, suggested that the likelihood of Leptobrachium mouhoti and Leptobrachium pullum being conspecific should be investigated.
