TypesHolotype: THNHM 15901 (Thailand Natural History Museum), (Field number MS 360), adult male; , collected on 7 April 2008, ca. 19.30h by Gridsada Deein. Paratypes. Chulalongkorn University Museum of Zoology, CUMZ-R-2009,6,24-1 (Field number MS 06), adult male; same locality as holotype, approximately 15 m. from cave entrance, collected on 7 April 2008, ca. 19.45 hours by Gridsada Deein.

DiagnosisDiagnosis (Definition): A moderately sized Cyrtodactylus, maximum snout-vent length at least 90.5 mm; body slender, limbs and digits long, slender; original tail very long and slender, one pair of enlarged postmental scales in broad contact with one another; dorsum relatively smooth textured, with 22–24 rows of small tubercles; 38–40 ventral scales across belly between weakly-developed ventrolateral folds; no precloacal groove, 6 precloacal pores separated by a diastema of 12–14 smaller poreless scales from a series of 4–5 femoral pores on each thigh in males, absent in females. 7–9 broad proximal lamellae and 12–14 narrow distal lamellae beneath 4th toe of pes. Median subcaudal scales forming broad transverse plates, but distinctly narrower than tail width.
