Taxonomy of the family Gekkonidae
Bibliography of the genus Blaesodactylus
Biodiversity of the family Gekkonidae








Genus
Blaesodactylus

Madagascar Velvet Geckos

Spreizfingergeckos

Madagascar-fløjlsgekkoer

1893 Blaesodactylus Boettger (type species: Hemidactylus sakalava Grandidier 1867)
Contents: 6 species, all of which are endemic.
Remarks: Russell (1978) regarded Blaesodactylus as a synonym of Homopholis, and Böhme & Meier (1980) suggested it to be treated as a subgenus of Homopholis, an arrangement which has been followed by many authors (e.g., Glaw & Vences 1992; Henkel & Schmidt 1995), however, Kluge & Nussbaum (1995) revalidated Blaesodactylus as a separate genus.
Distribution: Madagascar.
