TypesHolotype: ZRC 2.6759, adult male, collected on 24 June 2008 by Jesse L. Grismer, Perry L. Wood, Jr., and L. Lee Grismer at 1030 hrs. Paratypes. Collection locality, date and time of collection, and collectors of the paratypes are the same as that for the holotype. ZRC 2.6760 and LSUHC 9073 are males and ZRC 2.6761 is a female. 
CommentDiagnosis. Maximum SVL 46.1 mm; nine or 10 supralabials; eight or nine infralabials; ventral scales keeled; 5–9 discontinuous, pore-bearing precloacal scales with round pores; 23–30 paravertebral tubercles; tubercles not linearly arranged, present on flanks; tubercles absent from lateral caudal furrows; no ventrolateral caudal tubercles; lateral caudal row present; caudal tubercles not restricted to a single paravertebral row nor encircling tail; all subcaudals keeled, no enlarged median scacle row; two postcloacal tubercles on each side of tail base; no enlarged femoral or subtibial scales; subtibials keeled; no submetatarsal scales on first toe; 27–32 subdigital fourth toe lamellae; whitish bars on flanks. These differences are summarized across all Southeast Asian species in Grismer et al. (2008b:Tables 6,7). 
EtymologyThe specific epithet bayuensis is in reference to the type locality of Kampung Bayu. The Latin suffix -ensis is a derivation meaning “from” or “inhabiting” and renders the specific epithet an adjective that must be in grammatical accord with the gender of Cnemaspis.
