The Dubious Gecko (Gehyra dubia) above was found in a building at Lake Eacham, Qld.
Note that the pattern on this individual is similar to that seen on some Chain-backed Dtellas (Gehyra catenata)

DUBIUS DTELLA
The Dubious Gecko (Gehyra dubia) above was found amongst rocks at Springfield Lakes Qld.
Like many other species of geckos, this species is able to change its colouration/pattern making them difficult to identify sometimes.


DUBIUS DTELLA Gehyra dubia
This Dubious Gecko (Gehyra dubia) has a regrown tail, note that the tail tip has been damaged again and has started growing a forked tip.

The photos above and below were taken at a house between Millmerran and Inglewood (Queensland)

DUBIUS DTELLA Gehyra dubia
This Dubious Gecko (Gehyra dubia) is also regrowing its tail, these are extremely good climbers. Notice the shape of the toes!

Geckos in the Dtella genus (Gehyra) are often confused with the introduced Asian House Gecko (Hemidactylus frenatus ) which they sometimes live alongside, however Dtellas have smooth skin, whereas Asian house Geckos have small spines on their tail (unless it has been regrown) and tubercles (small bumps) on their bodies.
