Crotaphatrema tchabalmbaboensis is a species of caecilian in the family Scolecomorphidae, the tropical or African caecilians. It was discovered in 1997 on Mount Tchabal Mbabo in western Cameroon, and described to science as a new species in 2000. Three specimens were collected at the type locality, and no individuals have been observed since.

This caecilian, the third species in the genus Crotaphatrema, is differentiated from the others by size, body shape, color pattern, and the lack of grooves on its collars. The species is known only from the northern face of one mountain, where it was collected from forests on steep, sloping terrain.
