Comparisons: "Cyrtodactylus namtiram sp. nov. is herein compared to the following species confirmed to be members of the gansi group based on molecular phylogenetic analyses (Figure 2): C. aunglini; C. brevidactylus Bauer, 2002; C. chrysopylos; C. gansi Bauer, 2003; C. jaintiaensis; C. montanus; C. myaleiktaung; C. nagalandensis. The new species is further compared with the following Cyrtodactylus species from northeast India and surrounding regions that have not yet been assigned to any clade due to the absence of available molecular data: C. cayuensis; C. himalayicus; C. mandalayensis; C. markuscombaii; C. martinstollii; C. tamaiensis. Characters with conflicting information in the literature that are clarified in the ‘Errors in literature’ section (below) are marked with an asterisk followed by the point number in square brackets."
