DistributionMyanmar = S Burma (Tenasserim, Tavoy District)

Type locality: Tavoy District, Tenasserim.  
TypesType: BMNH 1946.8.24.54 (and possibly additional specimens). 
DiagnosisDiagnosis. A form closely allied to G. pulchellus and the Bornean species G. consobrinus. There is no trace of a preeanal groove; probably the adult male has an almost straight series of praeanal and femoral pores, uninterrupted in the middle line and numbering about 26; in the young male these are represented by depressions in a row of enlarged scales. The dorsal tubercles are smaller than in G. pulchellus and less distinctly keeled; the ventrals are larger; the ventral
region is not marked off by a line of enlarged tubercles the; plates on the ventral surface of the tail are not separated from the scales of the sides, as they are in G. pulchellus, by heterogeneously shaped, slightly enlarged scales. The head is very slightly depressed in the frontal region. In the types the colours have faded; the dorsal surface is dirty grey-brown, "with nine darker cross-bars, edged with dirty white, on the body, and ten or eleven on the tail; on the body they are considerably narrower than the interspaces, but on the tail they become gradually broader from before backwards; the enlarged dorsal tubercles are pale; the lower surface is dirty pale brown (original description, Annandale 1905).
