|Comment||CONSERVATION STATUS.—Pachydactylus fasciatus is not known to occur in any Namibian national parks, except perhaps Gross Barmen Hot Springs, although it is present in a number of community-based conservancies which may offer some measure of protection. Where it occurs P. fasciatusis locally abundant and we do not consider it under any immediate threat. However, this is one of few members of the group that are offered for sale in the herpetocultural trade.|
