TypesHolotype: ITBCZ 2490, adult male, collected by Ngô Văn Trí, 28 January 2014. Paratypes. ITBCZ 2491–2492, males, and ITBCZ 2493, female; same locality and collection date as holotype; collected by Phạm Hồng Thái and Ngô Văn Trí. ITBCZ 2331, adult female, collected by Ngô Văn Trí, 30 April 2014. 
DiagnosisDiagnosis: A moderately sized Gekko species, maximum SVL 80.0 mm, that may be distinguished from its congeners by the following combination of characters: 0–1 internasal; 34–37 interorbital scales rows; smooth dorsal scales consisting of 98–104 scale rows at midbody; 39–43 ventral scale rows at midbody; 3–4 precloacal pores in a straight series in males, sometimes separated by one poreless scale; 16 lamellae beneath digit I of pes; 15–16 lamellae beneath digit IV of pes; tail relatively segmented with 10–11 scales rows in length; median subcaudal scales forming broad transverse plates; dorsal pattern of 5–6 dirty whitish vertebral blotches between nape and sacrum alternating with W-shaped darkish blotches with yellowish borders; 6–7 pairs of irregular whitish spots interspersed with yellowish edged blotches on flanks between limb insertions. 
EtymologyThe specific epithet honors Professor Aaron M. Bauer, Villanova University, USA, who has made a great contribution to herpetological discovery.
