CommentDiagnosis. A small Hemidactylus with a SVLof about 5.0 cm. Characteristic is the dorsal scalation which consists of numerous irregular rows of large, convex, keeled tubercles which are nearly juxtaposed on the dorsal hindpart and on the tail root, separated mostly by only one row of surrounding, rather coarse granular scales. Also the temple is covered by large, juxtaposed tubercles with only few or even without granules between them. Moreover, the subdigital lamellae of the first digit and toe are very low in number, the terminal unpaired lamella of digit I (manus) being the only adhesive element while digit I (toe) has two scansors: one divided proximal and one undivided terminal one. 
EtymologyThe species name refers to Lama Forest, so far the only known locality of the new Hemidactylus. It is intended to stress the importance of this relict forest within the Dahomey gap also in conservational aspect as it may harbour still more unknown rain forest species.
