SynonymCyrtodactylus teyniei DAVID, NGUYEN, SCHNEIDER & ZIEGLER 2011 
DistributionC Laos (Borikhamxay)

Type locality: Ban Na Hin, Nam Kading NBCA, Borikhamxay Province, Laos  
Reproductionoviparous (manual and phylogenetic imputation, fide Zimin et al. 2022) 
TypesHolotype: NEM 0095, an adult female. Collected by Alexandre Teynié, 8 May 2010 (NEM = Nam Lik Eco Village Museum, Ban That-Wang Monh, Vientiane Province, Laos) 
DiagnosisDiagnosis: A species of the genus Cyrtodactylus, characterized by the combination of the following charac- ters: (1) SVL 89.9 mm, (2) longitudinal rows of dorsal tubercles 19, (3) ventral scales in 38 rows between ventrola- teral skin folds, (4) ventrolateral skin folds without tubercles, (5) enlarged femoral and precloacal scales 54 (precloacal scales 8, plus 23 femoral scales on each side), (6) precloacal depression lacking, (7) precloacal pores 14, (8) subdigital lamellae under the firth toe 19–20, (9) enlarged median subcaudals, and (10) nuchal band absent, dorsum with blotched pattern.
A comparison with other species of the genus Cyrtodactylus recorded from Laos, Vietnam and adjacent regions is given in the Discussion. In particular the high number of femoral and precloacal scales and the low number of precloacal pores distinguish Cyrtodactylus teyniei spec. nov. from most of the remaining species of the genus. 
CommentAbundance: only known from the type specimen (Meiri et al. 2017). 
EtymologyThis species is named in honour of Mr. Alexandre Teynié (Société d’Histoire Naturelle Alcide d’Orbigny, Clermont-Ferrand, France), for having collected the holotype of this new species and for his numerous contributions to the better understanding of the herpetology of Laos.
