CommentDiagnosis.—Cyrtodactylus gubaot most closely resembles congeners from the C. agusanensis complex and is distinguished from C. agusanensis by midbody dorsals 92–105 (vs. 111–124), paravertebrals 150–162 (vs. 184–196), postcloacal lateral tubercles 4–6 (vs. 8–11), venter dark gray with white flecks (vs. cream throughout), the presence (vs. absence) of a canthal stripe, anterior–posterior dorsal band projections moderate (vs. extensive), and cephalic tubercles large (vs. moderate).
Cyrtodactylus gubaot is diagnosed from sumuroi (Samar) by SVL 85.6–100.1 mm (vs. 73.9–84.9), paravertebrals 150–162 (vs.163–180), venter dark gray with white flecks (vs. cream throughout), anterior–posterior dorsal band projections moderate (vs. minimal), dark dorsal bands not enclosing light bands (vs. light bands enclosed), cephalic tubercles large (vs. moderate), and caudal annuli with dorsal tubercles 9–12 (vs. 3–7). Cyrtodactylus gubaot also exhibits tendencies toward a greater number of midbody ventrals (54–67 vs. 53– 58), midbody dorsals (92–105 vs. 87–98), and subdigital lamellae beneath Finger III (20–26 vs. 18–22) and Toe IV (24–30 vs. 21–24).
Cyrtodactylus gubaot is readily diagnosed from C. mamanwa (Dinagat) by paraverte- brals 150–162 (vs. 173–192), venter dark gray with white flecks (vs. cream throughout), the presence of a canthal stripe (vs. absence), dark dorsal bands not enclosing light bands (vs. light bands enclosed), and cephalic tubercles large (vs. small). Cyrtodactylus gubaot also shows a tendency toward fewer paravertebral tubercles (19–27 vs. 25–31).
Cyrtodactylus gubaot is distinguished from all other Philippine congeners by characters of body size and scalation (Table 3). Cyrtodac- tylus gubaot can be distinguished from C. annulatus, C. tautbatorum, C. jambangan, C. redimiculus, and C. philippinicus by dark gray venter with white flecks, larger cephalic tubercle size, and the presence (vs. absence) of a canthal stripe; from C. annulatus, C. tautbatorum, C. jambangan, and C. redimicu- lus by a greater number of subdigital lamellae beneath Toe IV; from C. annulatus, C. tautbatorum, C. jambangan, and C. philippi- nicus by the presence of femoral pore-bearing scales; from C. annulatus, C. tautbatorum, and C. redimiculus by a greater number of midbody tubercle rows; from C. redimiculus and C. philippinicus by dark dorsal bands enclosing light bands (vs. light bands not enclosed); from C. tautbatorum and C. jambangan by larger SVL; from C. annulatus and C. tautbatorum by more postcloacal lateral tubercles; from C. tautbatorum by a greater number of subdigital lamellae beneath Finger III; from C. jambangan by a greater number of caudal annuli with dorsal tubercles; and from C. redimiculus by a greater number of midbody ventrals, fewer paravertebrals, and moderate anterior–posterior dorsal band pro- jections (vs. minimal). 
EtymologyEtymology.—The specific epithet is a com- bination of the Leyte dialect (Waray-waray) terms guba (forest) and buot (spirit, essence) in reference to our observation that the new species is one of the most abundant and commonly observed reptiles from the forests of central Leyte Island.
