CommentDIAGNOSIS. Phyllurus kabikabi sp. nov. is separated from all its congeners by the following combined characters: tail cylindrical; rostral scale fully divided; ventral surface of hindlimb lacking pronounced, raised tubercules.

COMPARISON WITH SIMILAR SPECIES. Phyllurus kabikabi sp. nov. can only be confused with P. gulbaru Hoskin, Couper & Schneider and P. caudiannulatus, its congeners with cylindrical, non-depressed, tapering original and regenerated tails. It is readily separated from P. gulbaru by the condition of the rostral scale (rostral fully divided by rostral groove vs partially divided in P. gulbaru) and the number of pale bands on the original tail (5-6 vs 8 in P. gulbaru). P kabikabi sp. nov. is most similar to P. caudiannulatus, which is generally more spinose. It is readily separated by the scalation along the ventral surface of the hindlimb (uniform granules vs granules intermixed with pronounced, raised tubercules in P. caudiannulatus. 
EtymologyETYMOLOGY. Derived from Kabi Kabi (pronounced car-bee car-bee) to recognise the language group of the traditional owners of Oakview Forest Reserve. The name Kabi is derived from the traditional name Kav’ai or Kab’ai being the name for the native light grey bee and pronounced car-by.
