A small and very recently (1997) described genus of two Thai species. Both were formerly considered members of the Phyllodactylus genus, and may still be listed under that heading.
|Scientific Name||Common Name||Distribution||Size||Notes|
|D. melanostictus||?||Thailand (one locality only)||?"||Please see the EMBL Reptile Database entry for the escalation of this species and its relative into their own genus. So far I have been unable to trace any more information on either.|
|D. siamensis||Thai (?) Gecko||SE Asia, from India to Vietnam (Malaysia unknown)||?"||Species first identified in 1997 (EMBL Reptile Database). Care possibly as for D. melanostictus.|
