Reproduction 
TypesHolotype: LSUHC 11207, adult male, collected on 1 July 2013 by Shahrul Anuar at 2350 hrs.
Paratypes. LSUHC 11183–85 have the same collection data as the holotype. LSUHC 11288 has the same collection data as the holotype except that it was collected on 2 July 2013. 
CommentDiagnosis. Cyrtodactylus timur sp. nov. can be differentiated from all other species of Cyrtodactylus by having 10–12 supralabials; 8–10 infralabials; weak body tuberculation; no tubercles on ventral surface of forelimbs, gular region, or in ventrolateral body folds; 38–43 paravertebral tubercles; 21–24 longitudinal tubercle rows; 31–40 ventral scales; 21–25 subdigital lamellae on fourth toe; 21 or 22 femoroprecloacal pores; deep precloacal groove; four dark dorsal body bands; body band/interspace ratio 1.00–1.25; no scattered white tubercles on dorsum; 8–10 dark caudal bands on original tail; white caudal bands nearly immaculate; and a maximum SVL of 120.5 mm. These characters are scored across all species of the C. pulchellus complex in Table 5 (Grismer et al. 2014).

HAbitat: dipterocarp forest in the vicinity of a rocky stream; most common on the granite boulders along the stream but others were seen on the bases of trees and one individual was observed on an earthen bank. 
EtymologyThe specific epithet “timur” is an invariable noun in apposition in reference to this species being found in the Banjaran Timur of northeastern Peninsular Malaysia. “Timur” means east in the Malay language and is in reference to the mountain range being on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia.
