is this a newly described species or is it a rename of an "old" species?

from a review of the taxonomy of NZ geckos, once this geco was considered as form of Hoplodactylus maculatus or pacificus even.

But always subject to change.

Nicholas-
Is the third picture of it, has it got a regenerated tail(or split). Also I like the coloration of it the best in the third picture as well. The colors pop as opposed to the more muted tones of the first two pics. Awesome gecko though. Its nice to see the Hoplodactylus get some love. Wouldn't you like to get your hands on some H. rakiurae. hehehe

yes regenerated tail.

Brunneus are more shy than maculatus but I keep them in pair without any problem.

Hey Larry ~

Do let me know when you find some Hoplodactylus rakiurae. Not nice to keep such secrets :lol:!!

Are your brunneus and maculatus both female? Are they similar in size?


yes regenerated tail.

Hello,
sorry I was on holidays.

These aren't mine. They are Nicolas' geckos. I only took the pictures when I was with Nicolas.


Best regards
Alex


NB I think it is impossible to maintain rakiurae in captivity on the long term and would be a shame for these jewells (unfortunately). But who knows...

Woodworthia is the old name for Hoplodactylus.

All the forms in T. Jewells book are "local" populations that differ in coloration and morphology but are so close related to DNA-structure to maculatus or granulatus that they wont keep the "species" status for long. Is like Rhacodactylus leachianus, which differs very much over all New Caledonia and all the islands but is much closer in DNA equallity that many other species which are wide spread. So the forms are now all Rh. leachianus and not Rh. l. henkelii. Same will be here at the Hoplodactylus, and if there arenīt changes from Naultinus to Hoplodactylus or vice versa will also show up soon!

Best wishes
Tom
