CommentGekko badenii is closely related to G. petricolus.

Distribution: not in Laos fide Luu et al. 2015.

Priority: The name G. badenii was published on April 15 while G. ulikovskii was published on May 15, 1994, hence the former has priority.

Type locality of G. ulikovskii: NW Gliai-Contum Province, C Vietnam. The type locality is near the borders of Laos and Cambodia and thus the species may occur there as well.

Although Gekko ulikovskii is a commonly traded species, there appear to be mostly males in the pet trade (at a ratio of 1:12 or smaller for females/males; HOFMANN 2006). 
EtymologyNamed after Russian amateur herpetologist Dimitri Ulikovsky.
