Family : GEKKONIDAE
Species : Cnemaspis limi
Size (snout to vent) :8.5 cm
Size (total length) : 19 cm

This species occupies a similar ecological niche as the Peninsular Rock Gecko, preferring rocky outcrops, small caves and adjacent tree trunks in areas of primary forest.

Geckos of the Cnemaspis genus have round pupils and slender, clawed toes without adhesive pads. The body of the Tioman Round-eyed Gecko is mottled brown or olive-brown with yellow-gold flecks, and the legs and feet have yellow-gold bands.

The species occurs on the island of Pulau Tioman, off the eastern coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Previously this population was considered to be the Dark Round-eyed Gecko C. nigridius, but recent studies have suggested that C. limi is a separate species based on scale patterns, colouration and maximum size.
