Description: I have been looking for this species for some time, one afternoon I saw two but was unable to photograph them as they were very retiring. I returned to the area where I found them numerous times and was unable to see any. Just when I had resigned myself to not seeing the species I spotted one on my last day at an altitude far lower than I would have expected to find it. Not the best photo, but I am really pleased to have documented the gecko.
