DiagnosisDiagnosis. Cyrtodactylus semiadii sp. nov. may be distinguished from other congeners by the following unique combination of characters: small size (SVL up to 47.1 mm); no tubercles on forelimbs, head or occiput, weak tuberculation on dorsum and flanks; digits short; precloacal groove absent; enlarged precloacal and femoral scales absent; precloacal and femoral pores absent; tail short—approximately equal to SVL, robust, cylindrical, basal portion bearing tubercles; enlarged median subcaudal scales lacking. 
EtymologyThe specific epithet semiadii honors Prof. Dr. Gono Semiadi, one of the senior researchers in the Museum Zoologicum Bogoriense, in recognition of his kindness in providing young researchers the opportunity to participate in various biodiversity surveys.
