|Types||Syntypes: ZFMK 27099-101|
|Diagnosis||Diagnosis. A large species of 88.7 – 135.6 mm SVL mean 112.90, n = 51) and a long tail (ratio tail SVL = 344.74, n = 35). Tympanum large, more than half diameter of orbit. There are 5 – 6 scales along canthus rostralis between nasal scale and front border of orbit. Two larger keeled scales on rostral border of tympanum, and a row of compressed scales (3 – 4) behind hind corner of orbit. Gular sac large, extending under forelegs, covered with large keeled scales. Nuchal crest scales large, falciform and directed backwards, about as large as diameter of orbit or larger in adults. Dorsal crest lower than nuchal crest, continuing back to base of tail. Body scales rather large, strongly keeled in 44 – 59 midbody scales (mean: 49.21, n = 51), the uppermost scale row next to dorsal crest pointing upwards, 1 – 3 rows directed parallel, others scale row downwards. Ventrals large, strongly keeled. It can be distinguished from other congeners by the combination of 5 – 6 scales between nasal and orbit along canthus rostralis, large keeled body scales, with only uppermost scale row pointing upwards, a prominent nuchal and dorsal crest, and a large gular sac in males.|
|Comment||Records from Islands Salibabu (Sangihe) Karakelong and Talaud, south east of Mindanao cited by De Roij (1915: 123) could not been verified, but may be correct. A series of 14 specimens from Menado, Sulawesi, in RMNH formerly under B. jubata are redetermined as B. celebensis. B. jubata has been incorrectely reported from the Nicobar Islands (de Roij 1915, Smith 1935) but no voucher specimens exist according to DAS 1999 and own information.The occurrence in Southern India at Pondichery is questionably and may be due to introduced specimens. The species did not occur on Andaman Island (Das 1999). Specimens from Cambodia labelled B. cristatella” are B. jubata [Hallermann 2005].|
