Hemiphyllodactylus cf. titiwangsaensis — undescribed species
Hemiphyllodactylus titiwangsaensis was split into several species by Grismer, Wood, et al in 2015. The ones I saw in the highlands of Pahang are no longer considered part of H. titiwangsaensis, but have yet to be formally described.
On an evening full of wind and cool rain, sensible lizards all hunkered down somewhere out of sight, but this brave gecko went about its business as usual.
Grismer reports that these lizards are frequently seen on buildings and other structures at Bukit Fraser, but I saw them only in the forest.
On each foot, the inner toe is a little stump, usually without a claw.
