CommentSee Bauer (1994) for a more detailed discussion of the problems with this species. Lepidodactylus intermedius DAREVSKY 1964 and Lepidodactylus lombocensis MERTENS 1929 have been removed from the synonymy (or subspecies status) of L. lugubris by OTA et al. 2000.

Distribution data not corrected for the removal of Lepidodactylus intermedius DAREVSKY 1964 and Lepidodactylus lombocensis MERTENS 1929. Has been also reported from the Nicobar Islands but is not listed by DAS 1999. Not listed for Costa Rica and Mexico by KÖHLER (2000). McKeown (1996) assumes that L. lugubris was present in Hawaii before the arrival of Europeans. Reports from Mexico have no published support but have been perpetuated in the literature for some time (e.g. in Röll 2002).
