Key to the species of Cyrtodactylus  known from Laos

In addition to the new species described herein, the following three Cyrtodactylus  species are reported from Laos: C. buchardi  , C. interdigitalis  , and C. jarujini  (David et al. 2004, Stuart 1999, Teynié 2004, Teynié et al. 2004). However, further field research and investigation may certainly increase the number of bent-toed geckos from Laos. The subsequent key comprises the species currently known from that country:

1 Number of longitudinal rows of dorsal tubercles 17–22; original tail longer than snout-vent length ......................... 2

1 ’ Number of longitudinal rows of dorsal tubercles 25; original tail shorter than snout-vent length ............. C. buchardi 

2 Precloacal pores and femoral pores or only precloacal-femoral pores present ............................................................ 3

2 ’ Only precloacal pores present..................................................................................... Cyrtodactylus wayakonei  sp. n.

3 52–54 precloacal-femoral pores ..................................................................................................................... C. jarujini 

3 ’ 14 precloacal pores and 8–9 femoral pores ........................................................................................... C. interdigitalis
