Diagnosis. — Cyrtodactylus majulah new species is differentiated from its Sundaland congeners by having the unique combination of a maximum SVL of 68.0 mm; eight or nine supralabials; seven or eight infralabials; strongly tuberculated body and limbs; 39–46 paravertebral tubercles; 43–53 ventral scales; no abrupt contact of large and small postfemoral scales; no enlarged femoral scales; 20–23 subdigital lamellae; no femoral pores; no deep precloacal groove; enlarged precloacal scales; 7–11 precloacal pores; no enlarged median subcaudals; tubercles on the anterior portion of the tail; no reticulated pattern on head; having a blotched dorsal pattern; and lacking the paired, dark, semi-lunar shaped blotches on the upper nape prominently outlined in white. These and other characters are scored across all Sundaland species (Table 4). 
Etymology— In the Malay language (Bahasa Melayu), majulah means to go forward, to progress. This is in allusion to the present rapid advancement of research in the taxonomy of Cyrtodactylus, in which many species have recently been formally named, and more are waiting to be described.
