    Because the line right behind their head runs all the way down to the mouth.
    With lichtenfelderi it stops in the neck.

    Here is a link with some must know info abouth cave gecko's...
    goniurosaurus orientalis toyamai yamashinae kuroiwae splendens hainanensis lichtenfelderi luii araneus catbanensis bawalingensis huuliensis

    They are great none the less, we are picking up a few of them ourself tomorrow.

    (Tamara posted while I was typing

    As Tamara said, yours are hainanensis.

    Check this site, it explains the difference and has pictures to compare the two.

    Link:
    goniurosaurus orientalis toyamai yamashinae kuroiwae splendens hainanensis lichtenfelderi luii araneus catbanensis bawalingensis huuliensis

    It also has a page for hainanensis describing the two forms.
