Abstract

A new species of endemic Cyrtodactylus is described from Pulau Tenggol, Terengganu, off the northeastern coast of Peninsular Malaysia. It differs from other Sunda Shelf species by having a maximum SVL of 92 mm, enlarged tubercles on body and hind limbs but none on fore limbs, 27-35 ventral scale, a single row of transversely enlarged, median subcaudal scales, 18-20 subdigital lamellae on fourth toe, four precloacal pores, and a single row of enlarged, non porebearing femoral scales beneath each thigh which are not continuous with the precloacal pores.
