The taxonomy of South-East Asian ichthyophiid caecilians is largely in a woeful state. We give a new diagnosis for Ichthyophis supachaii from Thailand, based on a reexamination of the complete type series and recently collected material. The holotype is redescribed. The higher number of splenial than dentary teeth, a previously reported main diagnostic character of the taxon, is rejected. Ichthyophis supachaii follows the usual pattern of ichthyophiid caecilians in having more dentary than splenial teeth. Nevertheless, Ichthyophis supachaii is regarded as a valid taxon based on several morphometric and meristic characters. We provide a detailed description of the male phallodeum.
