Family : GEKKONIDAE
Species : Cyrtodactylus pubisculus
Size (snout to vent) : up to 77 mm
Size (total length) : up to ~ 160 mm

This species occurs in lowland forest and peat swamp forest in northern parts of Borneo. It is arboreal and nocturnal.

It is of typical Cyrtodactylus shape, with a slender body, slender forelimbs and moderate sized head. Its dorsal surface bears numerous tubercles and is greyish or brownish and patterned with dark brown or dark grey bars or pairs of blotches, and the tail is banded.

Its diet comprises insects including ants and cockroaches.

Cyrtodactylus pubisculus is endemic to the island of Borneo, and appears to be restricted to Sarawak and Brunei.
