Baja California is the second longest and most geographically isolated peninsula in the world, but over the last 4–5 million years, it has undergone a uniquely complex tectonic origin and ecological transformation, leaving the peninsula an archipelago at times. Expand
Two New Continental Species of Goniurosaurus (Squamata: Eublepharidae) with a Phylogeny and Evolutionary Classification of the Genus
Two new continental species of Goniurosaurus, G. luii from the Guangxi Province and the Island of Hainan, China, and G. araneus from northern Vietnam, are described herein and an evolutionary classification consistent with the phylogenetic pattern is proposed, elevating the endemic insular subspecies of G. lichtenfelderi to full species.

A colorful new species of insular rock gecko ( Cnemaspis Strauch 1887) from southern Vietnam
A new species of endemic, insular Cnemaspis is described from Hon Khoai Island, Ca Mau Province, Ngoc Hien District, 18 km off the southern tip of the Ca Mu Peninsula in southern Vietnam. CnemaspisExpand
Scientific Description Can Imperil Species
Scientists are racing to discover and describe new species in the face of a global biodiversity crisis. Ironically, in cases of commercially valuable taxa, publishing new species descriptions mayExpand
Integrative taxonomy uncovers high levels of cryptic species diversity in Hemiphyllodactylus Bleeker, 1860 (Squamata: Gekkonidae) and the description of a new species from Peninsular Malaysia
Using an integrative taxonomic approach imbues the revised classification of Hemiphyllodactylus with more objectivity, stability, and phylogenetic history, while identifying undescribed species-level lineages in potential need of conservation. Expand
Cyrts in the city: a new Bent-toed Gecko (Genus Cyrtodactylus) is the only endemic species of vertebrate from Batu Caves, Selangor, Peninsular Malaysia.
Cyrtodactylus metropolis sp. nov. from Batu Caves massif, Selangor, Peninsular Malaysia is differentiated from all congeners by having a unique suite of morphological and color patternExpand
A New Species of Goniurosaurus (Squamata: Eublepharidae) from Libo, Guizhou Province, China
A new species of the genus Goniurosaurus is described from Libo County, Guizhou Province and Huanjiang County, Guangxi, China, which can be discriminated from other known congeners by its medium size. Expand
A revision and redescription of the rock gecko Cnemaspis siamensis (Taylor 1925) (Squamata: Gekkonidae) from Peninsular Thailand with descriptions of seven new species
Four additional new species of Cnemaspis from western and southern Thailand are also described, illustrating that the unrealized diversity in this group is a function of unfocused collecting efforts coupled with poor taxonomy. Expand
A New Species of Goniurosaurus (Squamata: Eublepharidae) from Hainan Island, China
A phylogenetic analysis reveals that the new species is the basal member of the Goniurosaurus luii group, and differs from the other members of this group in being less than 107 mm in maximum snout vent length, having a more robust body stature, lacking elongate curved penultimate phalanges, having short robust digits, and having thin dark borders on the body bands.
