|Diagnosis||Head large, depressed, oviform; snout longer than the diameter of the orbit, which nearly equals its distance from the ear-opening; forehead concave; ear-opening horizontal ) or oval and oblique, one half to two-thirds the diameter of the eye. Head granular, the granules slightly enlarged on the snout, with very small tubercles on the temple. Rostral nearly twice as broad as high, subquadrangular, with median cleft above, in contact with two or three small shields at its upper border; nostril bordered by the rostral and three scales, sometimes also by the first upper labial. Nine or ten upper and eight or nine lower labials; mental triangular, more broad than long; a pair of large chin-shields forming a suture behind the mental, with one or two much smaller shields on each side. Body covered above with small granules and few, widely scattered, roundish, flat and smooth or slightly keeled, small tubercles. A distinct lateral fold. Ventral scales small, cycloid, imbricate, smooth, 35 40 across the middle of the belly. Male with a pubic groove and a continuous series of 42 52 pores, pierced in enlarged scales, which are visible in the female. Tail cylin- drical, tapering, covered with small flat scales, which are larger on the lower surface. Limbs long; digits strong, slightly de- pressed at the base, strongly compressed in the distal part; the basal phalanx with well developed transverse plates below (de Rooij 1915: 16).|

Tail with dark bands; reproduced tail longitudinally streaked with blackish. Lower parts whitish or brownish, uniform or with dark dots (de Rooij 1915: 16).
Size: Length of head and body 71 mm; tail 77 mm (de Rooij 1915: 16).
|Comment||This species has previously been considered as a synonym of C. marmoratus and is thus very similar to that species. Cyrtodactylus halmahericus has been removed from the synonymy of C. fumosus (or C. marmoratus).|
Distribution: Reports from Java are members of the C. marmoratus complex, C. halmahericus (Halmahera, Soah, Konorah)
