Occurs over most of Qld (extending just over the border into Northern NT) as well as inland Northern NSW
Commonly found inside and around houses.
The Dubious Gecko Gehyra dubia above was found 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.
This has a regrown tail, note that the tail tip has been damaged again and has started growing a forked tip.
The photo above and below were taken between Millmerran and Inglewood (Queensland)
This Gecko 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 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.
