Recent herpetological investigation in the northern Eastern Ghats revealed the occurrence of a divergent population of Hemidactylus maculatus maculatus Dumeril et Bibron, 1836. The Hemidactylus cf. maculatus population differs from other populations of H. m. maculatus morphologically. The present communication, deals with the description of a Hemidactylus cf. maculatus based on specimens collected from Tyda, Ananthagiri Hills in northern Eastern Ghats, Vishakapatnam District, Andhra Pradesh… 

Description of a new species of leopard geckos, Eublepharis Gray, 1827 from Eastern Ghats, India with notes on Eublepharis hardwickii Gray, 1827

The taxonomy of Eublepharis hardwickii is re-assessed based on museum material in light of the molecular phylogenetic study and the results support the recognization of two species distributed on either sides of the Brahmani River.

A new cryptic, rupicolous species of Hemidactylus Oken, 1817 (Squamata: Gekkonidae) from Meghamalai, Tamil Nadu, India.

Molecular data supports the distinctiveness of this species and helps ascertain its phylogenetic position within the larger Indian Hemidactylus clade.

First appearance deceives many: disentangling the Hemidactylus triedrus species complex using an integrated approach

Morphological and molecular data support the distinctiveness of the new species of Hemidactylus triedrus and the populations from western-central India and parts of Pakistan, and from southern Karnataka are distinct and diagnosable, and are herein described as two new species.

A New Species of Hemidactylus Goldfuss, 1820 (Reptilia: Gekkonidae) from Sri Lanka with Redescription of H. hunae Deraniyagala, 1937

A large gecko from the southern face peneplain foothills of the Central Highlands of Sri Lanka described, which closely resembles Hemidactylus hunae Deraniyagala 1937 but is distinguished by adult males reaching 121.2 mm snout–vent length.

A new Cryptic species of Gecko of the genus Hemidactylus Oken, 1817 (Reptilia: Gekkonidae) from Southern India

A new species of gecko superficially resembling Hemidactylus maculatus is described from the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu and is described as a large sized HemidACTylus acanthopholis sp.

Comments on “An updated and annotated list of lizards (Reptilia: Sauria) based on a review of distribution records and checklist of Indian reptiles by P.D. Venugopal”

It is proposed that H. subtriedrus should be listed as a species until it is formally synonimized and retained until further specimens from the type locality are examined.



A new ground-dwelling Hemidactylus (Squamata: Gekkonidae) from Maharashtra, with a key to the Hemidactylus of India

The new species is most similar in appearance to the lowlandinhabiting Hemidactylus albofasciatus Grandison & Soman, 1963, but can be distinguished by its larger size and a suite of distinctive scalation and coloration characters.

A New Species of Gecko of the Genus Hemidactylus (Reptilia: Gekkonidae) from Andhra Pradesh, India

A new species of Hemidactylus herein is described from a small population in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India. It is compared with all Indian congeneric species from which it differs by the following

New Species of Rock-Dwelling Hemidactylus (Squamata: Gekkonidae) from Gujarat, India

This medium-sized, chiefly rupicolous gecko may be distinguished from its south Asian congeners by having 12–16 rows of irregularly arranged, flattened to weakly conical dorsal tubercles, 7–9 subdigital lamellae on digit I of the pes and 10–11 on digit IV, and 12–14 femoral pores on each thigh separated by a median diastema.

Occurrence and comparison of Jerdon’s Gecko Hemidactylus subtriedrus Jerdon 1853 with Termite Hill Gecko Hemidactylus triedrus (Daudin 1802) from Ananthagiri Hills, northern Eastern Ghats, India

Information on the occurrence of Jerdon’s Gecko along with details showing the level of resemblance and differences from Termite Hill Gecko are provided.

Burmese Hemidactylus (Reptilia, Squamata, Gekkonidae): geographic variation in the morphology of Hemidactylus bowringii in Myanmar and Yunnan

Morphological analysis within one Burmese species, H. bowringii, is concordant with the geographic pattern of genetic differentiation revealed by Carranza's and Arnold’s (2006) phylogram based on mtDNA sequence data, and the regional differentiation among the populations examined indicates that two species occur in central and northern Myanmar.

The Fauna of British India, including Ceylon and Burma

The general character of “The Fauna of British India” is so well known, and has been so frequently commented on, that it is only necessary to say that the present half-volume is similar to those which have preceded it, and that the high character of the series is fully maintained.
