Well thanx for your thoughts, but personal believes is'nt quite what i'm looking for.. Richard Wells said that it was proven to be different, if I don't read his text wrong... but I haven't seen the evidence yet.... has anybody else?
Regarding Underwoodisaurus-Nephrurus, then Underwoodisaurus was synonymized with Nephrurus in 1990 in this citation
Bauer, A.M. 1990. Phylogenetic systematics and biogeography of the Carphodactylini (Reptilia: Gekkonidae). Bonn. Zool. Monogr., 30: 1-217.
This study is to my knowledge still valid and the conclusions not proven wrong regarding this issue.
:I personally it is a different species to U. milli. I don't know of a genetic study but the results I am sure would refenforce Richard's conclusions. As for Nephurus and Underwoodisaurus being the same genus....Not in any text I have has mentioned it. While thick tails are similiar to SOME of the Knob tails...N. laevis for instance they are quiet different in others....N. delani or N. laevissumus.
