Key ResultAn integrative taxonomic analysis based on the mitochondrial gene ND2 and its flanking tRNAs, morphology, and color pattern indicates that a newly discovered gecko described herein as Hemiphyllodactylus cicak sp. nov. from Penang Hill on the Island of Penang, Peninsular Malaysia is a member of the H. harterti group.Expand

Phylogenetic taxonomy of Hemiphyllodactylus Bleeker, 1860 (Squamata: Gekkonidae) with descriptions of three new species from Myanmar
TLDR
A phylogenetic taxonomy of the gekkonid genus Hemiphyllodactylus based on molecular, morphological, and ecological data recovered 28 species, including three new species from the upland regions of the Shan Plateau in eastern Myanmar, which emphasizes the unrealized herpetological diversity endemic to karst ecosystems and the need for increased field work throughout such habitats in South-East Asia.

ABSTRACT Phylogenetic analyses of the 49 nominal species of the gekkonid genus Hemiphyllodactylus based on the mitochondrial gene NADH dehydrogenase subunit 2 and its flanking tRNAs resulted in aExpand

Two more new species of Hemiphyllodactylus Bleeker (Squamata: Gekkonidae) from the Shan Hills of eastern Myanmar (Burma).
TLDR
An integrative phylogenetic analysis recovers two new species of the gekkonid genus Hemiphyllodactylus (Bleeker) from the Shan Hills of eastern Myanmar that are more closely related to Indochinese taxa east of Myanmar as opposed to other Indo-Burmese species. Expand
Systematics and natural history of mountain reed snakes (genus Macrocalamus; Calamariinae)
TLDR
The phylogeographical pattern of sympatric genetically distinct species of Macrocalamus endemic to upland areas is attributed to the fossorial nature of these snakes and the montane forest expansion and retraction resulting from cyclical, glacioeustatically driven climatic processes that have reconstructed the geography of Sundaland continuously over the last 25 Myr. Expand
The hills are alive with geckos! A radiation of a dozen species on sky islands across peninsular India (Squamata: Gekkonidae, Hemiphyllodactylus) with the description of three new species
TLDR
The deep history of the region and the importance of montane habitats as islands of unique biodiversity that have persisted through millions of years of changing climates are highlighted and the need for systematic biodiversity inventory across India is emphasized. Expand
Mountain endemism in Malesian geckos: can biotic interactions push lizards up hills?
Historical and contemporary processes shaping striking variation in terrestrial biodiversity along elevational gradients have received much attention from evolutionary biologists, often by way ofExpand
Gene flow creates a mirage of cryptic species in a Southeast Asian spotted stream frog complex
TLDR
This work compared conventional SDMs with more robust genomic analyses that assess population structure and gene flow to characterize species boundaries in a Southeast Asian frog complex and showed that gene flow and introgression can produce phylogenetic patterns and levels of divergence that resemble distinct species. Expand
Systematics, ecomorphology, cryptic speciation and biogeography of the lizard genus Tytthoscincus Linkem, Diesmos & Brown (Squamata: Scincidae) from the sky-island archipelago of Peninsular Malaysia
TLDR
This paper presents a poster presented at the 2016 International Conference of the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences and Natural Resources (AANR) on “Ecological Assessment of the Response to Climate Change in Southeast Asia” (ICSA). Expand

Repeated evolution of sympatric, palaeoendemic species in closely related, co-distributed lineages of Hemiphyllodactylus Bleeker, 1860 (Squamata: Gekkonidae) across a sky-island archipelago in Peninsular Malaysia
A time-calibrated phylogenetic tree indicates that the evolution of sympatric, montane, endemic species from closely related, co-distributed lineages of the Hemiphyllodactylus harterti group were notExpand
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
TLDR
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
Phylogeny and biogeography of Philippine bent-toed geckos (Gekkonidae: Cyrtodactylus) contradict a prevailing model of Pleistocene diversification.
TLDR
This study contributes to a nascent body of literature suggesting that the current paradigm for Philippine biogeography is an oversimplification requiring revision, and finds complex patterns that are only partially explained by past island connectivity. Expand
A new species of Hemiphyllodactylus Bleeker, 1860 (Squamata: Gekkonidae) from northwestern Thailand.
TLDR
A new species of gekkonid from northwestern Thailand is separated from all other species of Hemiphyllodactylus by a set of features including: a maximum SVL of 41.2 mm, which places this species in the speciose H. typus group. Expand

Phylogenetic relationships of the dwarf boas and a comparison of Bayesian and bootstrap measures of phylogenetic support.
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis suggests that New World dwarf boas are not monophyletic, and is finds Exiliboa and Ungaliophis to be most closely related to sand boas, boas and advanced snakes, whereas Tropidophis and Trachyboa form an independent clade that separated relatively early in snake radiation.

A new species of Hemiphyllodactylus (Reptilia: Gekkonidae) from northern Laos.
TLDR
The new species from Laos is characterized by the following features: dorsal trunk pattern dark brown with two rows of irregular transverse bands; dark lateral head stripe distinct; upper zone of flank with a dark brown stripe; caecum and gonadal ducts unpigmented. Expand

Molecular phylogenetics, tRNA evolution, and historical biogeography in anguid lizards and related taxonomic families.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of evolutionary changes in the gene encoding tRNA(Cys) suggests gradual reduction of dihydrouridine (D) stems by successive deletion of bases in some lineages, which contrasts with the one observed for parallel elimination of the D-stem in mitochondrial tRNAs of eight other reptile groups, in which replication slippage produces direct repeats.
