Comment 
EtymologyWe derive the new species name in honor of the Ati people, a Negrito ethnic group believed to be among the first to colonize the central Philippines. Similar to this new species of Pseudogekko, Inati (the native language of the Ati), is infrequently encountered and possibly threatened, and is estimated to be spoken by fewer than 2,000 people. The specific epithet is a noun of masculine gender.
