|Diagnosis||Diagnosis. A large Cyrtodactylus (SVL to 132.5 mm) with enlarged tubercles on antebrachium absent, moder- ately-developed dorsal tubercles in 20–24 longitudinal rows at the midpoint of the trunk (axilla-groin interval); 35–45 ventral scale rows at the same level, a continuous series of 58–66 enlarged femoroprecloacal scales extend- ing from one knee to the other, each scale bearing a pore in males; mental bordered posteriorly by a small median scale (replacing the tip of the median posterior extension of the mental), and a pair of postmentals; lips pale, strongly contrasting with the brown upper face; dark dorsal bands on trunk three, with a narrow dark edge posteri- orly but the anterior margin blending with the pale interspace; pale interspaces between dark body bands lacking blotches or spots; basal tail bands more than twice as wide as pale interspaces.|
|Etymology||From the Greek πρό (pro = before) and ναρός (naros = flowing), alluding to the blending of the anterior edge of the dark body bands with the preceding pale interspaces.|
