CommentSynonymy: synonymized with H. typus by BROWN & ALCALA 1978 but revalidated by ZUG 2010.

Major diagnostic features: bisexual taxon; pigmented caecum and oviducts; no precloacal– femoral pores in females, present in males, precloacal and femoral pore series separated; chin scales bordering mental and first infralabial not greatly enlarged; digital lamellae formulae 3-3-3-3 (forefoot) and 3-4-4-4 (hindfoot); aver- age adult SVL ~34, 31 mm (females, males); series of red spots dorsolaterally on trunk and bright postsacral bar of red and dark brown (ZUG 2010).

Behavior: nocturnal 
EtymologyTaylor (1918) did not explain his choice of the epithet insularis, presumably because he assumed the name was self-explanatory; insularis is a Latin adjective for of islands.
