Type locality: Timor.
|Types||Holotype: 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).|
|Comment||Only 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”
