Abstract A specimen of Leptotyphlops bicolor (Jan) from Mole National Park, Ghana, has the second supralabial in broad contact with the third and it becomes a virtual subocular, excluding the ocular from the lip. This condition was previously considered diagnostic for L. dissimilis (Bocage), described from the White Nile.
