A new species of Cyrtodactylus is described from Lore-Lindu National Park, Sulawesi Island, Indonesia. It is distinguished from all other Cyrtodactylus by a unique suite of scalation characters and a distinctive color pattern. The new species is the fourth Cyrtodactylus known from the island of Sulawesi and one of two new species found in 2004. These recent discoveries suggest that the diversity of the herpetofauna in Wallacea, a poorly studied biological “hotspot,” may be far richer than previously thought.
