Occurs in far Northern NT &WA as well as far Northwestern QLD
This Northern House Dtella Gehyra australis was photographed near Darwin, NT
Geckos in the Dtella genus (Gehyra) are often confused withe 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.
