Abstract: Two new species of the diplodactylid gecko Bavayia are described
from Mt. Koghis, Province Sud, New Caledonia. One species is a large,
characteristically colored representative of the B. sauvagii complex. It is sympatric
with B. sauvagii itself, for which a neotype is here designated. The second
new taxon is a large member of the Bavayia cyclura group. Selection of a neotype
of B. sauvagii and designation of a lectotype of B. cyclura facilitate future
evaluation of intra- and interspecific variation within these two species groups.
Although restricted in apparent range, both new species are relatively common
where they occur.
