Telmatobufo bullocki (Bullock’s mountains false toad) is a species of frog in the Calyptocephalellidae family, recently moved from the Leptodactylidae family. It is endemic to Chile. It is only known from a few locations in the Cordillera de Nahuelbuta, a part of the Chilean Coast Range. It is extremely rare; extensive fieldwork in 1992–2002 turned up only a single adult. It occurs in fast-flowing streams in temperate Nothofagus forest. The tadpoles are free-swimming and feed on algae growing on submerged rocks. It is threatened by siltation of streams caused by clear-cutting. It occurs within the Nahuelbuta National Park.
