DistributionIndonesia (N Sumatra)

Type locality: Hochfläche von Brastag, am Sibayak, Nordost-Sumatra (elevation 1400 m).  
Reproductionoviparous 
TypesHolotype: ZSM 3/1928, destroyed fide Glaw, cited in Hallermann 2005.
Neotype. ZMB 55931 near Berastagi 3°11’ N, 98° 31’ E, “Fuss des Sibayak” about 1450 m a.s.l., Sumatera Utara, leg. Ulrich Manthey, April 1996, adult male (designated by Hallermann 2005). 
DiagnosisDiagnosis. Bronchocela hayeki can be distinguished from its sympatric congener B. cristatella by the presence of larger gular scales and larger ventral scales in 8 rows (vs. 10 – 12 in cristatella) and crescent-shaped erect nuchals as long as or longer than diameter of orbit in males and a dark brown tympanum and dark colored orbit; from jubata and orlovi with similar nuchal scales and shape of gular sac by higher number of scales around midbody (58 – 75 vs. 43 – 55), from celebensis by a larger diameter of tympanum (more than half diameterof orbit). It differs from B. marmorata by more dorsal scale rows directed upward (7 – 9 vs. 1 – 2 in marmorata, jubata, orlovi, and 3 – 4 in celebensis). It differs from B. danieli, smaragdina and Bronchocela sp. nov. by fourth finger not longer than fifth toe.
