DistributionPhilippines (Mindanao)

Type locality: “Mindanao”. Neotype locality: “Cabadbaran, southwest side of Mt. Hilong-hilong, Agusan del Norte Province, Mindanao Island.”  
TypesNeotype: CAS 133318 (designated by BROWN & ALCALA 1978)
Holotype: lost (fide BAUER et al. 1995) 
CommentPseudogekko labialis possesses non-arched preanofemoral pore series, a diagnostic characteristic of the genus Lepidodactylus (Kluge, 1968). Based on examination of external morphology of the available specimens, SILER et al. 2013 anticipate that P. labialis eventually will be placed back in the genus Lepidodactylus.
