You're welcome. I've often been confused by this species because it seems to me that they are extremely variable (as they were at my former place in New Guinea). I've also seen many cases on the internet where this species name has been applied for geckos which are clearly NOT the same species. So while it may be perceived as an easy species to ID, I think it's sometimes not so easy...[In general, many species have variable looks, but have diagnostic characteristics which cannot be seen properly in simple digital photos].

Awesome, thanks. I didn't realise they were the same as some of the others I had taken, as it had different patterns. But seems that some of them are.
