Cyrtodactylus  species groups in Laos

As currently recognized, 21 Cyrtodactylus  species are known from Laos. Based on our molecular phylogeny, the molecular data presented in Nazarov et al. (2014), and a combination of characters including size, dorsal color pattern, scalation, and geographic distribution, we herein propose four species groups within the genus Cyrtodactylus  occurring in Laos (see Table 13), which are defined as follows:

Kingdom

Animalia

Phylum

Chordata

Class

Reptilia

Order

Squamata

Family

Gekkonidae
