1864 Gekko semipalmatus Günther (Rösler & Tiedemann 2007)

Remarks: Previously included scabridus and similignum (e.g., Stejneger 1932; Wermuth 1965). Hainan records refer to similignum.

Bourret (1937, 1939) considered palmatus a synonym of chinensis, however, Ota, Lau, Weidenhöfer, Yasukawa & Bogadek (1995) demonstrated the validity of both forms.

1857 Gymnodactylus tenuis Hallowell (Kluge 1969)
1858 Gekko indicus Girard (Wermuth 1965)
1955 Gekko gecko azhari Mertens

Remarks: Previously included reevesii. Records from Pakistan (e.g., Das 1996; Wermuth 1965) are based on the subspecies azhari, originally described from "East Pakistan" (today's Bangladesh), which has been misinterpreted as Eastern Pakistan (Schleich & Kästle (eds.) 2002). A record from Micronesia is based on a mislabelled specimen or an accidental introduction (Bauer 1994). Reports from the Andaman and Nicobar Islands are considered erroneous, as no voucher specimens exist (Das 1999). Not recorded recently from Taiwan (Zhao & Adler 1993). No recent confirmation from Madagascar (Grossmann 2004), although reported by Rooij (1915).
Introduced to: Belize, Brazil (Santa Catarina), Guadeloupe, Guam, Madagascar, Martinique, New Zealand, USA (Florida, Hawaii).
Distribution: Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China (Fujian, Guangdong, Guangxi, Hainan, Hong Kong, Yunnan), East Timor (incl.

Gekko hokouensis

Hokou Gecko, (Guangxi/Kwangsi Gecko)

Hokou-Tokeh

Hokou-tokay

1928 Gekko japonicus hokouensis Pope
Gekko hokouensis Zhou, Liu & Li 1982
1962 Luperosaurus amissus Taylor (Ota, Lue, Chen & Brown 1989)

Remarks: Previously included liboensis. Previously regarded as a synonym of japonicus (e.g., Pope 1935; Wermuth 1965). Toda, Hikida & Ota (2001) demonstrated that hokouensis includes two genetically divergent, but morphologically almost identical forms, which occur on five islands of the Okinawa Group, Riukiu Islands, Japan. The two cryptic species have not yet been formally been separated, and their relationship to the typical, continental hokouensis remains unsolved. Presence in the Philippines, based on the type locality of Luperosaurus amissus Taylor 1962 (Tablas Island), is probably in error (Ota, Lue, Chen & Brown 1989; Linkem, Siler, Diesmos, Sy & Brown 2010).
Introduced to: Japan (Izu Islands), USA (New York).
Distribution: China (Anhui, Fujian, Guizhou, Hunan, Jiangsu, Jiangxi, Zhejiang), Japan (Honshu, Kyushu, Ryukyu Islands [Okinawa Islands, Sakishima Islands (incl. Miyako Islands, Yaeyama Islands), Satsunan Islands (incl. Tokara Islands)]), Taiwan (incl. Lanyu Island).

Distribution: Indonesia (Sulawesi).


Gekko japonicus

Japanese Giant Gecko, Japanese Gecko

Japanischer Tokeh

Japansk Tokay

1836 Platydactylus japonicus Dumeril & Bibron
Gekko japonicus Boulenger 1885
1838 Platydactylus jamori Temminck & Schlegel (Wermuth 1965)
1842 Hemidactylus nanus Cantor (Wermuth 1965)
1891 Platydactylus yamori Fritze [substitute name for Platydactylus jamori Temminck & Schlegel 1838]

Remarks: Previously included hokouensis (e.g., Pope 1935; Wermuth 1965). Although Rösler, Ziegler, Vu, Herrmann & Böhme (2005) listed japonicus for Vienam, it was neither included by Bobrov & Semenov (2008), nor by Nguyen, Ho & Nguyen (2009). The inclusion of this species in the fauna of Vietnam by Bourret (1937, 1939) has been suggested to be based on misidentified palmatus (Ota, Lau, Weidenhofer, Yasukawa & Bogadek 1995), but Bourret's description fits neither japonicus nor palmatus. It might instead represent canhi. Because Bourret's specimens cannot be located, it is not possible to determine their true identity. Although David & Ineich (2009) stated that japonicus was indeed recorded from Vietnam by Nguyen & Ho (1996), these latter authors considered the presence of japonicus in Vietnam doubtful, unless Bourret's specimens or new material turn up (Rösler, Nguyen, Doan, Ho, Nguyen & Ziegler 2010). Brown & Alcala's (1978) single record of japonicus from the Philippines was based on the type locality of Luperosaurus amissus Taylor 1962 (Tablas Island), which they believed was in error. Subsequently, hokouensis has been revalidated, and amissus included in its synonymy (Ota, Lue, Chen & Brown 1989). Records from Taiwan (e.g., Stejneger 1907, Wermuth 1965) are believed to refer to hokouensis (Zhao & Adler 1993).
Distribution: China (Anhui, Chongqing, Fujian, Gansu, Guangxi, Guizhou, Hubei, Hunan, Jiangsu, Jiangxi, Shaanxi, Shanxi, Sichuan, Yunnan, Zhejiang), Japan (Honshu, Kyushu, Shikoku, Ryukyu Islands [incl. Satsunan Islands], Tsushima Islands), South Korea.

Guizhou Narrow-disked Gecko

Guizhou-Tokeh

1982 Gekko liboensis Zhou & Li in Zhou, Liu & Li

Remarks: Regarded as a synonym of hokouensis by Zhao & Adler (1993), followed by some authors (e.g., Günther 1994; Kluge 2001), but others have retained it as a valid species (e.g., Kluge 1993; Bauer 1994; Matsui & Ota 1995; Zhao, Zhao, Zhou & al. 1999; Rösler 2000).

Gekko mindorensis

Remarks: Possibly a synonym of kikuchii (Bauer 1994; Kluge 2001; Rösler, Bauer, Heinicke, Greenbaum, Jackman, Nguyen & Ziegler 2011), however, the geographic distance between these nominal species does not speak in favour of this (Gaulke 2003).
