Abstract
A new species of the genus Lycodon is described from northern Laos. It differs from the superficially similar Lycodon ruhstrati by the colouration of the body and venter, the number of bands on body and tail; from the Lycodon fasciatus group by the number of the bands, the unbanded venter and the loreal not touching the eye. This new species is only known from the karst hills in Vientiane Province, Laos.
