DistributionMalaysian Peninsula (border at Pahang-Selangor, Cameron Highlands, Fraser’s Hill and Gunung Benom, Pahang)

Type locality: Gap, Fraser’s Hill (elevation: 2700 feet), at the border between Pahang and Selangor.  
Reproductionoviparous 
TypesHolotype: BMNH 
CommentSynonymy: Dring (1979) considered Cnemaspis flavolineata as a synonym of C. affinis.

Distribution: not in Thailand (as listed by Chan-ard et al. 2015) but confined to peninsular Malaysia (Grismer et al., 2008, Hikida 2015).

Diagnosis. Maximum SVL 39.2 mm; nine supralabials; nine infralabials; ventral scales keeled; five or six contiguous, pore-bearing precloacal scales with round pores; 23 paravertebral tubercles; body tubercles linearly arranged, absent on flanks; tubercles present in lateral caudal furrows; no ventrolateral caudal tubercles; lateral caudal row present anteriorly; caudal tubercles encircle tail anteriorly; subcaudals keeled, no enlarged median scale row; two postcloacal tubercles on each side of tail base; no enlarged femoral or subtibial scales; subtibials keeled; no enlarged submetatarsal scales; and 23 subdigital fourth toe lamellae; large, black, round spots on nape and anterior portion of body; light vertebral stripe variably present (Tables 6,7; from GRISMER et al. 2014).

Remarks. The original description of Cnemaspis flavolineata (Nicholls 1949) was based on an immature male (SVL 27.7 mm) from Fraser’s Hill, Pahang thought to be unique in having a pentagonal mental scale and a yellow vertebral stripe. Dring (1979) noted that mental scale morphology varied considerably in the south-
ern Thai populations of Cnemaspis which prompted him to consider C. flavolineata a junior synonym of C. affinis (GRISMER et al. 2008).
