Description

Recently revised genus (see below). Identified based on aspects of the pronotum, from which it was discerned from the closest other possibility, A. nalepae: "Pronotum translucent waxy beige; variable length orange-brown setae along anterior margin; dorsal surface of pronotum covered with short orange-brown setae that are denser and longer anteriorly and laterally; pronotal pattern medium orange-brown “panther face”, with little detail and no aura; within the species pronotal pattern runs from light brown through every shade to dark brown, some with considerable
discernible detail, but always with no aura."

We found leaf toed geckos earlier (no vouchers) and the one house gecko and got the trifecta with this banded gecko. Too bad we couldn't find Switaks gecko to make it a quad.

Finally found one of these in Cali, found a few last year in Phoenix and looked for them in Ocotillo before but this was the first one officially found. In a crack of wall where wall meets ground, was able to catch for a voucher. I'm sure there were more but due to wind we did not look long.
