CommentDiagnosis. Hemiphyllodactylus banaensis sp. nov. can be distinguished from all other species of Hemiphyllodactylus by having the unique combination of a maximum SVL of 48.2 mm in males and 51.0 mm in females; seven chin scales extending transversely from the union of the first and second infralabials and posterior margin of mental; enlarged postmental scales; three circumnasal scales; 4–11 scales between supranasals; 9–12 supralabials; 9–11 infralabials;18–20 longitudinally arranged dorsal scales at midbody contained within one eye diameter; 9–12 longitudinally arranged ventral scales at midbody contained within one eye diameter; lamellar formula on hand 3 (II), 4–5 (III), 4–5 (IV), 4 (V); lamellar formula on foot 4 (II), 5 (III), 5 (IV), 5 (V); 20–21 precloacal and femoral pore-bearing scales contiguous in males and 0–20 contiguous pore-bearing precloacal scales in females; dorsal pattern on body composed of transverse blotches and two whitish stripes across shoulder extending to sacrum; postsacral mark whitish brown and bearing anteriorly projecting arms; and caecum and oviducts unpigmented.
