    I wonder how much effort it would take to get permission to post the publications for all of the new descriptions here on the site? I'm sure there's many of us that would like to be able to look over that info.
    As for all the new species...I'll take 1.1 of each please

    I'm quite sure it would be quite expensive to get that kind of permission - e.g. the species described in Zootaxa alone would cost a fortune, as this online journal in itself is quite expensive to subscribe to.

    Jan is right, the copyright for all of these would get quite costly.
    Also, here is one I missed. Thanks to Ngo Van Tri!
    Gekkonidae
    Cyrtodactylus pseudoquadrivirgatus Rosler Thanh Trong Tri & Ziegler

    Considering they were JUST discovered the chances of them being in the pet trade already is slim and none.

    and about half of those species could technically be considered "ground geckos"
    geckos from around the world...
