Reproduction 
TypesHolotype. FMNH 258695 (field number HKV 63933), adult male, collected 13 September 1999 by BLS, Harold F. Heatwole, and Bee Thaovanseng. 
DiagnosisDiagnosis. Hemiphyllodactylus indosobrinus sp. nov. can be distinguished from all congeners by having the following combination of characters: supralabials 15; infralabials 12; precloacofemoral pores 18 in males (females unknown); subdigital lamellae on Fingers II–V 4-5-5-4; total lamellae on hand 18; subdigital lamellae on Toes II– V 4-5-5-5; total lamellae on foot 19; dorsal scales across midbody within one orbital diameter 30; ventral scales across midbody within one orbital diameter 11; cloacal spurs two; chin scales eight; and internasal scales three.

Comparisons. Hemiphyllodactylus indosobrinus sp. nov. can be differentiated from all other congeners in mainland Southeast Asia and southern China by a combination of the following characters: chin scales eight (versus ≥10 in H. aurantiacus and ≤6 in H. linnwayensis Grismer, Wood, Thura, Zin, Quah, Murdoch, Grismer, Li, Kyaw, & Lwin, 2017); postmentals distinctly enlarged (versus not enlarged in H. aurantiacus); circumnasal scales three (versus ≥4 in H. flaviventris, H. khlonglanensis Sukprasert, Sutthiwises, Lauhachinda, & Taksintum, 2018, H. kiziriani, and H. linnwayensis); supralabial scales 15 [versus ≤13 in H. aurantiacus, H. banaensis, H. changningensis Guo, Zhou, Yan, & Li, 2015, H. chiangmaiensis Grismer, Wood, & Cota, 2014, H. dushanensis (Zhou & Liu, 1981), H. flaviventris, H. huishuiensis Yan, Lin, Guo, Li, & Zhou, 2016, H. jinpingensis (Zhou & Liu, 1981), H. khlonglanensis, H. kiziriani, H. linnwayensis, H. longlingensis (Zhou & Liu, 1981), H. montawaensis Grismer, Wood, Thura, Zin, Quah, Murdoch, Grismer, Li, Kyaw, & Lwin, 2017, H. tonywhitteni Grismer, Wood, Thura, Zin, Quah, Murdoch, Grismer, Li, Kyaw, & Lwin, 2017, H. yunnanensis, and H. zugi Nguyen, Lehmann, Le, Duong, Bonkowski, Ziegler, 2013]; infralabial scales 12 (versus ≤10 in H. changningensis, H. linnwayensis, H. montawaensis, and H. tonywhitteni); dorsal scales within one orbital diameter 30 (versus ≤27 in H. aurantiacus, H. banaensis, H. changningensis, H. chiangmaiensis, H. flaviventris, H. huishuiensis, H. khlonglanensis, H. kiziriani, H. linnwayensis, H. montawaensis, H. tonywhitteni, H. yunnanensis, and H. zugi); ventral scales within one orbital diameter 11 (versus ≤9 in H. changningensis, H. huishuiensis, H. linnwayensis, H. montawaensis, H. tonywhitteni, and 14–16 in H. zugi); total lamellae on hand 18 (versus ≤16 in H. aurantiacus, H. changningensis, H. chiangmaiensis, H. dushanensis, H. flaviventris, H. jinpingensis, H. khlonglanensis, H. kiziriani, H. linnwayensis, H. longlingensis, H. montawaensis, H. yunnanensis, and H. zugi); total lamellae on foot 19 (versus ≤16 in H. aurantiacus, H. changningensis, H. chiangmaiensis, H. khlonglanensis, H. longlingensis, and H. yunnanensis); subdigital lamellae on Finger I four (versus three in H. huishuiensis, H. tonywhitteni and ≥5 in H. banaensis, H. dushanensis, H. flaviventris, H. jinpingensis, H. khlonglanensis, H. kiziriani, and H. longlingensis); subdigital lamellae on Toe I five (versus ≤4 in H. changningensis, H. chiangmaiensis, H. huishuiensis, H. montawaensis, H. tonywhitteni, and seven in H. dushanensis); and continuous precloacofemoral pores 18 (versus ≥20 in H. dushanensis, H. jinpingensis, H. tonywhitteni, and ≤13 in H. flaviventris, H. kiziriani). 
CommentHabitat: the holotype was collected approximately 1 m above the ground inside of a vertical palm tree in wet evergreen forest during the morning (Fig. 1B).

Only known from the holotype. 
EtymologyThe specific epithet is taken from the Latin indus for belonging to India, and sobrinus for maternal cousin, in reference to its close relationship, along with H. flaviventris, in maternally-inherited mitochondrial sequence data to the Indian endemic H. aurantiacus (Fig. 2; Grismer et al. 2013, 2014a,b, 2015, 2017; Nguyen et al. 2013, 2014; Ngo et al. 2014; Yan et al. 2016; Sukprasert et al. 2018).
