status

 

Cyrtodactylus  (170 + species, 12 of which — listed here — have been variously considered as allied to Palearctic naked-toed geckos)

Composition: C. battalensis (Khan)  , C. dattanensis (Khan)  , C. fasciolatus (Blyth)  , C. himalayanus (Duda & Sahi)  , C. lawderanus (Stoliczka)  , C. malcolmsmithi (Constable)  , C. markuscombaii (Darevsky, Helfenberger, Orlov & Shah)  , C. martinstolli (Darevsky, Helfenberger, Orlov & Shah)  , C. medogensis (Zhao & Li)  , C. nepalensis (Schleich & Kästle)  , C. tibetanus (Boulenger)  , C. zhaoermii Shi & Zhao 

Distribution: southern Tibet, southern flanks of Himalayas from northern India and Nepal eastwards to Southeast Asia, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Philippines, New Guinea, Solomon Islands, northern Australia

Comments: Although Khan & Rösler (1999) included lawderanus  in their stoliczkai  group of “Circum- Himalayan” Cyrtodactylus, Khan  subsequently moved it to the “ tibetinus  [sic] group” which he later (Khan 2003 c) named Siwaligekko  . All Siwaligekko  are here considered to be Cyrtodactylus  , although the name may be retained at the subgeneric level for members of this basal grade of Tibeto-Himalayan geckos (see text). Cyrtopodion medogensis  is tentatively included in this genus. Originally described as a Tenuidactylus  , it has recently been moved to Cyrtodactylus  by Li et al. (2010). Although body proportions and its distribution in eastern Tibet are consistent with Cyrtodactylus  , body and especially tail tuberculation are uncharacteristically pronounced for this genus.
