Other common names:
butleri: Butler's Four-clawed Gecko
insulensis: Pacific Stump-toed Gecko, Pacific Gecko
Remarks: Rocha, Ineich & Harris (2009) suggested that insulensis might represent a valid species, comprising the Pacific populations of mutilata, however, they did not make a formal revalidation, pending further studies. Nevertheless, Flecks, Schmitz, Böhme, Henkel & Ineich (2012); Zug, Ineich, Pregill & Hamilton (2012), and Zug (2013) listed insulensis as a separate species. According to Zhao & Adler (1993), erroneously recorded as introduced to New Zealand (e.g., Robb 1980).
Introduced to: Christmas Island, French Guiana, India (Andaman Islands, Uttar Pradesh), Indonesia (Talaud Islands), Mauritius (incl. Rodrigues), Mexico (Baja California Sur, Chiapas, Jalisco, Nayarit, San Luis Potosi, Sinaloa), New Zealand, Reunion, USA (California, Florida, Hawaii), Vanuatu.

Gehyra nana

Northern Spotted Dtella, Northern Spotted Rock Gecko

Nördlicher Gefleckter Vierkrallengecko

Nordlig Plettet Stumpfingergekko

1978 Gehyra nana Storr
Dactyloperus nana Wells & Wellington 1984

Remarks: Doughty, Bourke, Tedeschi, Pratt, Oliver, Palmer & Craig (2018) did not mention the occurrence of this species in Queensland, neither did they include the state in their distribution map. It is unclear to me whether Queensland records (e.g., Cogger 2014; Vanderduys, Hines, Gynther, Kutt & Absolon 2011; Wilson & Swan 2010; Wilson 2005) are still valid or have been reassigned to other species.

1836 Hemidactylus oualensis Duméril & Bibron (Bauer 1994)
1842 Gehyra gularis Gray (Bauer 1994)

Remarks: Presumed extirpated in Guam (Bauer 1994). Presence in mainland New Guinea needs confirmation, according to Beckon (1992), who believed the species to be rare or absent there. Nevertheless, it has been listed from the island by many subsequent publications (e.g., Bauer 1994; Rösler, Glaw & Günther 2005; Kraus & Allison 2006). Records from the Loyalty Islands (New Caledonia) (Burt & Burt 1932) refer to vorax (Bauer & Sadlier 2000). Records from the Isle of Pines, off the New Caledonian mainland, are based on wrong locality data (Bauer & Sadlier 2000). Records from Lord Howe & Norfolk Islands (Australia) are erroneous (Cogger 1996). Records from the Australian mainland (incl. Torres Strait Islands) are doubtful (Bauer 1994; Cogger 1996).
Extinct in: Guam.
Introduced to: New Zealand, USA (Hawaii).
Distribution: American Samoa, Cook Islands (incl. Rarotonga), Easter Island, Fiji (incl.
