Cnemaspis lineatubercularis • Integrative Taxonomy of the Rock-dwelling Gecko Cnemaspis siamensis complex (Squamata, Gekkonidae) reveals A New Species from Nakhon Si Thammarat Province, southern Thailand

The rock-dwelling gecko genus Cnemaspis is one of the most species-diverse genera of gekkonid in Thailand. Earlier studies relied on morphological data to identify species, but cryptic morphology often obscured species diversity in Cnemaspis. In this study, an integrative taxonomic approach based on morphological characters and sequences of the mitochondrial NADH dehydrogenase subunit 2 (ND2) gene were used to clarify current taxonomy of the Cnemaspis siamensis complex and delimit a new species from Lan Saka District, Nakhon Si Thammarat Province, southern Thailand.
