Phylogenetic and Multivariate Analyses of Gekko smithii Gray, 1842 recover A New Species from Peninsular Malaysia and Support the Resurrection of G. albomaculatus (Giebel, 1861) from Sumatra

Furthermore, they bear a number of concordant statistically significant differences in meristic and morphometric features, morphospatial separation in multivariate space, and discrete differences in color pattern.  Leer más.
