Type locality: Tham Khao Sonk hill, Tha Chana District, Surat Thani Province, Thailand (9.549878°N, 99.175544°E; 107 m elevation)  
Reproduction 
TypesHolotype. BYU 62544 adult male, collected 30 July 2016, by PLW, LLG, CA, MC, MSG, MLM.
Paratopotypes. All paratypes (BYU 62542–62543, ZMKU R 00729–00731) bear the same collection and locality data as the holotype. 
CommentBehavior: diurnal. No specimens were observed at night.

Habitat: karst tower embedded within a highly disturbed lowland limestone forest. This species may use the vegetation at night for refuge to avoid Cyrtodactylus thirakaputhi which is nocturnal and maybe a potential predator.

Abundance: only known from its original description (Meiri et al. 2017). 
EtymologyThe specific epithet thachanaensis is a noun in apposition to the type locality where this species is found.
