|Comment||Uroplatus malahelo is characterized by its small size; dorsoventral flattening of the body; absence of lateral membranous fringes on the head, neck, body, limbs, and tail base; short snout; undivided rostral scale; short tail with shallow and regular crenellation along the border; homogeneous dorsal and ventral scalation; and nearly uniform coloration. The new species is most similar to Uroplatus alluaudi, which is known only from the extreme northern rainforests of Madagascar, but it differs from U. alluaudi in having homogeneous dorsal scales (heterogeneous in U. alluaudi), in coloration, and in the structure of the hemipenis.|
