The discovery of an extreme magnetoresistance (XMR) in the non-magnetic rare-earth monopnictides LaX (X = P, As, Sb, Bi), a recently proposed new topological semimetal family, has inspired intensive research on the correlation between the XMR and their electronic structures. In this work, using ARPES to investigate the three dimensional band structure of a lanthanum monopnictide, we unraveled its topologically non-trivial nature with the observation of multiple topological surface Dirac fermions, as supported by our ab-initio calculations. Furthermore, we observed substantial imbalance between the volumes of electron and hole pockets, which rules out the electron-hole compensation as the primary cause of the XMR, putting strong constraints on future theoretical investigations.
