CommentDiagnosis. Cyrtodactylus batucolus is distinguished from all other Sunda Shelf species by having a maximum SVL of 75.2 mm; moderately sized, conical, keeled, body tubercles; tubercles occurring on occiput, forelimbs, hind limbs, and beyond base of tail; 38–42 ventral scales; no transversely enlarged, median, subcaudal scales; proximal subdigital lamellae transversely expanded; 17–19 subdigital lamellae on fourth toe; abrupt transition between postfemoral and ventral femoral scales; enlarged femoral and precloacal scales with a continuous series of 43–46 pore-bearing scales in males; precloacal groove absent, precloacal depression present; no white reticulum on head; dark blotches on body. These characters are summarized across all Sunda Shelf species in Table 1 in GRISMER et al. 2008. 
EtymologyThe specific epithet batucolus comes from the Malaysian word batu meaning rock and the Latin suffix colo meaning to inhabit or to dwell in.
