CommentDiagnosis. A medium-sized Cyrtodactylus with a slender habitus and a maximum total length of 176.6 mm (SVL 62.5–90.8 mm) that can be distinguished from all congeners on the basis of the following combination of characters: 1) rounded body in cross-section, not wider than head; 2) neck band, extending to posterior margin of eyes; 3) dorsum with 3–5 dark transverse bands with yellow margins and dark spots; 4) ventrolat- eral skin folds along the body or enlarged lateral tubercles absent; 5) tubercles present on top of head, body, forearm, hind limbs and tail; 6) 19–20 irregular longitudinal rows of dorsal tubercles; 7) 47–50 longitudinal rows of ventral scales at midbody; 8) segmented tail with whorls, not depressed, base not enlarged; 9) 0–3 clo- acal spurs on each side of tail base; 10) 9–11 precloacal pores in angular series in males and 16–27 enlarged precloacal scales in both sexes; 11) enlarged femoral scales and femoral pores absent; 12) precloacal groove absent; 13) subcaudals small, not transversally enlarged; 14) uninterrupted series of 20–23 lamellae beneath. 
EtymologyThe name of the species derives from the Greek adjective kryptos (Latin cryptus) meaning “concealed”, “hidden”, because the new species had been overlooked previously.
