The Ramsey Canyon Leopard Frog (Lithobates subaquavocalis) is the obsolete name for a taxon formerly thought to be a separate species that has now been shown to be part of the species known as the Chiricahua Leopard Frog (Lithobates chiricahuensis), a species of frog in the family Ranidae.

A recent article proved that the Ramsey Canyon Leopard Frog is not a valid taxon, and instead this taxon is simply a part of the species known as the Chiricahua Leopard Frog.
