Beltran, A. Cobos, A. Alonso, C. Thompson, and C. Ogle. Adult male LSUHC 10902 and adult female LSUHC 10903 were collected on the same date as the holotype by E. Quah, L. Grismer, B. Beltran, A. Cobos, A. Alonso, C. Thompson, and C. Ogle. 
DiagnosisDiagnosis. Cyrtodactylus tebuensis sp. nov. can be distinguished from all other Sundaland species by having the following suite of character states: 73.1–84.1 mm adult SVL; large, conical, keeled body tubercles; tubercles present on top of head, occiput, nape, and limbs and extend posteriorly beyond base of tail; 43–51 ventral scales; no transversely enlrarged, median subcaudal scales; proximal subdigital lamellae transversely expanded; 17–21 subdigital lamellae on fourth toe; abrupt transition between posterior and ventral femoral scales; enlarged femoral scales; no femoral or precloacal pores; precloacal groove absent; and body bearing four wide, bold, dark brown stripes (lateral stripe on each flank and a pair of paravertebral stripes). The meristic characters are scored against C. sworderi and C. quadrivirgatus in Table 4 and against all other Sundaland species in Grismer et al. (2012b:Table 4 in GRISMER et al. 2013). 
CommentAbundance: only known from the type locality (Meiri et al. 2017).
