    Hey all. after the recent misidentification with the DECC ballot I just wanted to confirm what species of Gecko I got. DECC said it was a Dtella but they werent sure which species of Dtella. Any assistance would be tops. Thanks in advance.

    I'm not sure if you're having a dig at DECC or actually serious (it's hard to tell with the number of beginners on this site) but thats a Heteronotia binoei (Bynoes Gecko).

    Been here for almost 18 months (ignore join date) and I kid you not. DECC ID'd it as a Dtella.

    That doesn't look like a Dtella, more like a Bynoes Gecko, Thanks Tim.

    Gee, they should of asked me to look at that too whilst I was there. All the IDs were done by a vet in this instance...

    Just something Ive noticed further is that Im supposed to code it as "2077" according to DECC's letter. This species that corrosponds with this code is the Eastern Stone Gecko. Bit confusing!

    Dtynoern Stone Gecko anyone?
