I doubt it, finding people working with Lygodactylus is hard enough.

I've never seen that species, or heard about it...

Good luck finding any info. A quick google search yielded no images, and only scant mention in bio-references by region. I did find out it's common name is king dwarf gecko...but that isn't really a revelation now (with the whole rex thing) is it. Any photos anyone has would be truly interesting to see.

I did a Google image search to see if there might be anything and it came up with absolutely nothing, so I'm interested to know more as well!
This website shows where the species have been found (Malawi and Mozambique): http://www.herpbreeder.com/worldspecies/Sauria/gekkota/lygodactylus.htm

I spoke to don broadley, the guy who described them, and he had this to say


I described Lygodactylus rex in 1963 (Ann. Mag. nat. Hist. (13) 6: 285-288). It is the largest species in the genus and is endemic to lowland forest on Mulanje Mountain, southern Malawi. It is blue-grey, suffused with golden yellow laterally, above the shoulder is a conspicuous black patch with a central cream eye-spot
