Abstract: A new species in the diplodactylid gecko genus Bavayia is described
from the northern ranges of Province Nord, New Caledonia. The new
gecko is a gracile, large-bodied form distinguished from its congeners by the
morphology of digit I of the manus and pes, and the presence of two long
rows of preanal pores that extend onto the thigh. The two known specimens
are from high elevation in closed forest. This is the first species of diplodactylid
gecko apparently restricted to high elevations in New Caledonia and joins a
growing group of high-elevation skinks that have been described in recent
years.
