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








Genus
Mediodactylus

Mediterranean Bent-toed Geckos, Mediterranean Thin-toed Geckos

Paläarktische Nacktfingergeckos*

Palćarktiske Nřgenfingergekkoer*

1977 Mediodactylus Szczerbak & Golubev (type species: Gymnodactylus kotschyi Steindachner 1870; syn. Böhme 1985)
1981 Carinatogecko Golubev & Shcherbak (type species: Bunopus aspratilis Anderson 1973; syn. Cervenka, Frynta & Kratochvil 2010; Bauer, Masroor, Titus-McQuillan, Heinicke, Daza & Jackman 2013)
Contents: 18 species, of which 10 (55.6%) are endemic.
Other common names:
Carinatogecko: Keel-scaled Geckos
Remarks: The validity of this genus has been under much debate, with some authors regarding it as a valid genus (e.g., Macey, Ananjeva, Wang & Papenfuss 2000; Cervenka, Kratochvil & Frynta 2008; Cervenka & Kratochvil 2010; Cervenka, Frynta & Kratochvil 2010), while others have regarded it as a synonym or subgenus of Cyrtopodion (e.g., Böhme 1985; Sindaco & Jeremchenko 2008). Bauer, Masroor, Titus-McQuillan, Heinicke, Daza & Jackman (2013) confirmed the validity of the genus. Already Cervenka, Frynta & Kratochvil (2010) regarded Carinatogecko as a synonym of Mediodactylus, but Torki (2011) retained it as a valid genus. However, Bauer, Masroor, Titus-McQuillan, Heinicke, Daza & Jackman (2013) confirmed Carinatogecko as a synonym of Mediodactylus.
Distribution: S. Europe, Middle East, C. Asia.

Remarks: Previously regarded as a synonym of stoliczkai (e.g., Smith 1935; Wermuth 1965). Revalidated by Khan (1992). Khan (1992) synonymized chitralensis with walli, an action followed by Szczerbak & Golubev (1996) and Sindaco & Jeremchenko (2008), however, some authors have continued to list chitralensis as a valid species (e.g., Das 2003; Venugopal 2010), possibly confused by Szczerbak & Golubev (1996, which is a page by page translation of the 1986 original), in which only a footnote reveals that chitralensis has been synonymized with walli. Auffenberg, Krysko & Rehman (2010) confirmed chitralensis to be a synonym of walli. Although reported from India (Smith 1935 [as chitralensis]; Das 2003 [as chitralensis]), there are no confirmed records from the country (Venugopal 2010).
