DiagnosisDescription: Head large; snout twice as large as the diameter of the orbit; the distance of the latter from the ear-opening equals one time and a half its diameter; forehead concave; ear-opening sub-oval, vertical, one half the diameter of the eye. Head with small granules intermixed with conical tubercles on the occiput and temples; the granules enlarged on the snout. Rostral quadrangular, twice as broad as high, grooved, and notched behind; a small supranasal, separated from its fellow by a small azygous shield; nostril bordered by the rostral, the first labial and three nasals. Twelve upper labials, last four very small, nine or ten lower labials; mental triangular; two pair of chin-shields, median largest and broadly in contact behind the point of the mental. Throat minutely granular. Body depressed, covered above with very small granules; back with about 17 20 longitudinal series of alternate, very strong, subconical, ribbed or uni-to three-carinate tubercles. Lateral fold with slightly enlarged conical tubercles. Ventral scales small, cycloid, imbricate, 36 40 across the middle of the belly. Male with 18 or 19 femoral pores on each side along the thigh. Tail cylindrical, covered above with small scales, intermixed with rows of strong unicarinate tubercles, 6 in a row; beneath with a median series of broad transverse plates. Limbs rather long; digits long, the basal part somewhat dilated, with enlarged transverse, imbricate plates underneath, (9 or 10 under the fourth toe), distal phalanges compressed (de Rooij 1915: 11)

Coloration: Grey above, with two dorsal series of dark brown, small, more or less confluent spots; similar spots on the limbs and tail. A dark temporal streak. Lower surface whitish, each scale punctulated with black (de Rooij 1915: 11)

Size: Length of head and body 85 mm.; tail 102 mm (de Rooij 1915: 11).
