DistributionIndonesia (Timor)

Type locality: Timor.  
TypesHolotype: MNHN 810; the other known specimen assigned to this name is ZMB 9478 (designated as paratype by Bauer & Günther 1991 but not valid following Bour & Brygoo 2013 because the species was described based on a single specimen). 
CommentOnly known from 2 specimens (Rösler 2016).

Synonymy: Status unclear. Bauer 2013 stated that the specimens are “probably not a member of this genus” (Cnemaspis). Rösler 2016 concluded that the MNHN specimen belongs to Garthia or Homonota and the ZMB specimen is a Gonatodes. A.M. Bauer (pers. comm., 22 July 2017) suggested to delete this “species”
