Abstract: A new species of gecko of the genus Ailuronyx is described from the Seychelles islands of Mahe and Praslin. This species, Ailuronyx tachyscopaeus, differs from previously described species in being smaller, having fewer femoro-anal pores in the males and distinct squamation. Some ecological observations are made concluding that the species is locally abundant in native palm forest.
