Cyrtodactylus bintangrendah — GRISMER et al. 2014: 360
|Distribution||Peninsular Malaysia (Perak)|
Type locality: Lenggong Valley, Perak, Peninsular Malaysia (5°06.431” N 100°58.322” E; at 104 m elevation.
|Reproduction||oviparous. Of the four adult females sampled (LSUHC 12159, 12162, 12173–74), none were gravid although one hatchling was collected (LSUHC 12177). This would suggest that C. hidupselamanya sp. nov. does not breed year-round and that April is at the end of its reproductive season (Grismer et al. 2016).|
|Types||Holotype. LSUHC 9974, Adult male, collected on 29 October 2011 by E.S.H. Quah, Fatim, S.B.M., and Nor Amira, B.A.R.|
Paratypes. Paratypes, LSUHC 9975–77 bear the same collection data as the holotype. These were all once type material of Cyrtodactylus bintangrendah but are now excluded from that species.
|Comment||Habitat: Cyrtodactylus lenggongensis sp. nov. is saxicolous and found on limestone karst outcrops and in the vicinity of the mouths of limestone caves (Fig. 7). During the day, geckos are occasionally observed hiding in cracks and crevices of the outcrops. At night, lizards emerge and can be found perching or crawling over the walls of the karst formation 1–3 m above the ground. No lizards were found on the surrounding vegetation (Grismer et al. 2016).|
|Etymology||The specific epithet lenggongensis refers to the Lenggong Valley, Perak where this species is endemic.|
