Andrea's keelback (Amphiesma andreae) is a species of nonvenomous colubrid snake found in the central Annamite Range in Vietnam. Only one specimen has ever been examined and photographed. In 2006, Thomas Ziegler and Le Khac Quyet, captured a male in the area of Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park whose coloring was distinct enough from other known keelbacks to be described as a newly-discovered species.
