Diagnosis. Snout-vent 43.3 – 59 mm, tail 53 – 79 mm; snout blunt-pointed, very big eyes; rounded smooth dorsal tubercles forming 10 longitudinal rows at midbody, 23 – 26 tubercles in the row (from occiput to the middle of sacrum); tail with segments, that were formed by semi-rings of enlarged weakly keeled round- ish tubercles, subcaudal plates in single median series, wider than height, not bifurcate in the tip of non-regen- erated tail; 22 – 30 abdominal scales across middle of belly, 115 – 141 midventral scales along belly. Males have 3 – 6 (usually 4) highly pronounced preanal pores in a regular row on enlarged scales. 8 – 11 infralabial scales, 12 – 14 supralabial. Mental plate is large, three pairs of submentals scales, first pair in broad contact. Nasal shields noticeably swollen (Fig. 5). Limbs and tail are very thin and attenuate. There are 6 – 8 transverse dark narrow bands on the dorsum, interspaces between which bigger to the width of bands; tip of tail light or white, without transverse bends. 
EtymologyNamed after Dr Michael Leonidovich Golubev (1947-2005), a Russian herpetologist who emigrated from Russia in the 1990s to work at the University of California, Davis and subsequently in Seattle. He co-wrote Gecko Fauna of the USSR and Contiguous Regions (1996).
