Well, this is nothing scientific, but I have one that I received with the very tip of his tail missing and over time he's grown a little formation very similar to that which you described. It makes sense that they should be able to regenerate something if there are enough actual tail cells left. Though, I don't think that my crested will ever grow back any of the lamellae or setae of the tip.

:Most people seem to agree that Cresties cannot grow back their tails, however, I have two books The herpetofauna of New Caledonia by Aaron Bauer and Rhacodactylus by Henkel and Seipp; one of which says they can grow it back TO A POINT. This means that as long as the gecko maintains a certain amount of their original tail, they can regenerate it. The ones pictured that cannot grow theirs back have formed a small ball or nub at the end of their inguinal region. What are people's takes on this?
