TypesHolotype: ROM 32120, an adult male collected on 22 Sept 1997 by Robert W. Murphy, Nikolai L. Orlov, Amy Lathrop, Leslie A. Lowcock, and Ho Thu Cuc; (Fig. 3).

CommentCyrtodactylus taynguyenensis sp. nov. does not possess enlarged femoral scales. C. taynguyenensis is distinguished from other congeners by a combination of the following characters: small subcaudal scales, not transversely enlarged; presence (C. phuocbinhensis sp. nov.) or absence (C. taynguyenensis sp. nov.) of enlarged femoral scales; number of preanal pores; and dorsal pattern.

Diagnosis. Size medium, snout-vent length (SVL) 60–85 mm; body moderately robust; tail longer than SVL, subcaudals small, not transversely enlarged; enlarged femoral scales absent; males with six preanal pores arranged in “Λ” formation; upper labials 8–9; lower labials 8–9; narrow subdigital lamellae on fourth toe 17–21, ventral scales 42–49. 
EtymologyThe specific epithet taynguyenensis refers to the Vietnamese name for the Central Highlands, Tây Nguyên, where the new species was discovered.
