Herein we describe a new species of the gekkonid genus Cyrtopodion from Dadun, a town between Toksun County and Turpan City, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, Western China. It differs from congeners in China and adjacent countries by the combination of nostril bordered by rostral, first supralabial, one supranasal, and two subequal postnasals; dorsal tubercles arranged in regular longitudinal rows; 23–26 ventral scales across mid-abdomen; 97–108 scales along the ventrum of body from postmental to cloaca; 18–22 subdigital lamella beneath fourth toe; 8–10 precloacal pores in males; caudal tubercles broadly in contact laterally with each other; a single row of transversally enlarged subcaudals; dorsal bands in waving shape, much thinner than interspaces.
