Information Description

The dwarf day gecko Cnemaspis podihuna is the smallest gecko recorded in Sri Lanka, and it is considered endemic to the island. According to the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) Red List it is an endangered species. This small gecko has been previously recorded from fourteen areas of dry mixed forest and wet forest.
here we record this species from new localities: Buddhangala, Geelone, Malayadikanda, and Nilgala. The information available on this species is inadequate, even though this genus was recently critically reviewed. We observed some behaviours and ecology that may be very important for the future conservation of this species.
