TypesHolotype: KIZ 11665, an adult male 
CommentMorphologically, the new species is diagnosed by its medium-size (snout-vent length 79.24 mm and tail length 82.59 mm, for the single known individual), in having a series of moderately enlarged transverse subcaudals and a series of moderately enlarged femoral scales that extend from preclo- acal scales, in possessing femoral scales without pores, with males having five precloacal pores, and in exhibiting 8 su- pralabials, 10 infralabials, 23 narrow subdigital lamellae on its fourth toe, and 36 transverse ventrals.

Diagnosis. Medium sized, snout-vent length 79.24 mm; body moderately robust; tail 82.59 mm, longer than snout-vent length, with a series of medium enlarged transversal subcaudals; a series of medium enlarged femoral scales continue from precloacal scales; femoral scales without pores; males with five precloacal pores; supralabials 8; infralabials 10; narrow subdigital lamellae on fourth toe 23; ventral scales 36; and dorsal tubercles smooth or slightly keeled.
