Biodiversity of the family Gekkonidae








Genus
Luperosaurus

Flap-legged Geckos, Camouflage Geckos, (Fringed Geckos)

Laschengeckos*

Lappegekkoer*

1845 Luperosaurus Gray (type species: Luperosaurus cumingii Gray 1845)
Contents: 10 species, all of which are endemic.
Remarks: Previously included Gekko browni, G. gulat, and G. iskandari. Includes one species (brooksii) previously placed in the genus Gekko. Luperosaurus amissus Taylor 1962 is now regarded as a synonym of Gekko hokouensis. Alcala’s (1986) and Brown & Alcala’s (1978) inclusion of Polillo (Philippines) as possible part of the distribution of macgregori refer to two hatchlings of uncertain taxonomic status (Brown, Supriatna & Ota 2000).
Distribution: West Malaysia, Malay Archipelago.
Reported from: Indonesia (Kalimantan, Sumatra), Malaysia (Sabah), Philippines (Babuyan Islands [Babuyan Claro, Barit, Calayan, Camiguin Norte], Batan Islands [Batan], Luzon, Mindanao, Mindoro, Negros, Palawan, Panay, Polillo, Sulu Islands [Jolo]).
