Reproduction 
TypesHolotype. MZB 12998, Female, , SVL 30.7 mm, collected on 18 July 2007 by M. Kamsi. 
CommentDiagnosis. Cnemaspis aceh sp. nov. differs from all other Southeast Asian diminutive Cnemaspis in having the unique combination of a maximum SVL of 30.7 mm; each postmental bounded by four scales; dorsal scales keeled; six spine-like tubercles on flank; gular scales keeled; pectoral scales and abdominal scales keeled; ventral scales of thigh smooth; subcaudals keeled, scales on median row enlarged and keeled; seven supralabials; 18 lamellae under fourth toe. The number of precloacal or femoral pores is unknown because the holotype is female.
Cnemaspis aceh sp. nov. is most similar to C. dezwaani, but it can be distinguished from this species (characters in parenthe- ses) by having six (four) spine-like tubercles on flank and no marblings on dorsum (dark brown marblings present sides of vertebral stripe).

Habitat: primary rain forests. The holotype was found in a crevice on a tree trunk during daytime. 
EtymologyThe specific epithet refers to the region inhabited by this species, Aceh, the northernmost province of Sumatra Island, Indonesia, formed here as an invariable noun in apposition.
