CommentDiagnosis: Dierogekko baaba can be distinguished from all congeners on the basis of the following combination of characters: size relatively small (37.2 mm in unique type), one internasal scale; subdigital lamellae relatively narrow, divided distally; [male preanal pore condition unknown]. Dorsum with a broad, pale vertebral stripe with edges weakly demarcated by vague pale dots and thin, broken dark borders. In addition to those features noted in Table 4, D. baaba can be distinguished from its congeners by its narrower digits (compare Figures 3 and 7). 
EtymologyThe species name baaba is a noun in apposition referring to the type locality of this form on Île Baaba.
