Cyrtodactylus leegrismeri — GRISMER 2011
Cyrtodactylus leegrismeri — GRISMER et al. 2017

TypesHolotype: UKMHC 545, adult male, collected by Chan Kin Onn at 2300 hrs, 20 June 2009. Paratypes. All paratypes (UKMHC 515, 517, 526, 535, 551) were collected at the same locality and on the same date as the holotype between 2200 and 2400 hrs. 
DiagnosisDiagnosis: Cyrtodactylus leegrismeri is distinguished from all other congeners by having a maximum SVL of 92 mm; conical, keeled, tubercles occurring on the occiput, body, hind limbs, and beyond base of tail; no enlarged tubercles on forelimbs; 18–19 longitudinal tubercle rows at midbody; 27–35 ventral scales at midbody; single row of transversely enlarged, median subcaudal scales; subdigital lamellae transversely expanded; 18–20 subdigital lamellae on fourth toe; abrupt transition between posterior and ventral femoral scales; four precloacal pores arranged in an arch; single row of enlarged, non pore-bearing, femoral scales beneath each thigh which are not continuous with precloacal pores; precloacal groove absent, precloacal depression present; weak reticulations on head (adults); dark, indistinct symmetrical blotches on body. 
CommentNote the author names are cited this way based on their citation in Grismer et al. 2010 (Zootaxa 2625: 49) despite the fact that the paper says “CHAN KIN ONN & NORHAYATI AHMAD”.

Abundance: only known from its original description (Meiri et al. 2017).
