Description: The dewlap of D. indochinensis is widest at its base, decreases in width over its entire length, and terminates in a sharp point. In contrast, the dewlap of D. blanfordii is distally expanded with a basal constriction, and terminates in a rounded distal edge. Draco indochinensis also differs from D. blanfordii in the presence (in both sexes) of a thick, black transverse band that extends across the posterior gular region from one throat lappet to the other, and in the presence of dark radial bands on the dorsal surfaces of the patagia in both sexes rather than in females only. See also STUART et al. (2006).
