Stenodactylus petrii Anderson, 1896 

1896 Stenodactylus petrii Anderson, A  contribution to the herpetology of Arabia, with a preliminary list of the reptiles  and batrachians of Egypt: 96.

The syntypes of petrii  have been examined by Arnold (1980) in the morphological revision of the genus Stenodactylus  , where photographs of one of them can be seen. We therefore consider certain that they belong to the species currently called Stenodactylus petrii  .

Name-bearing type: three extant syntypes, Natural History Museum BMNH 1946.8.23.27– 29 (formerly– 25). Type locality: Tel el Amarna, Egypt.

Proposed status: Stenodactylus petrii Anderson, 1896  .
