Found under a pile of roofing iron on Thursday Island
@St3v3, It is likely the Eborac Island gecko Nactus eboracensis.
The thin, clawed digits reduce it to two possible genera in that area - Heteronotia and Nactus. The dorsal scales are too uniform in size for Heternotia. I have no personally experience with Nactus and all my field guides have been packed away for the last two years, so I don’t know the specific diagnostic features to look for. However, based on images from the net, the observable features of N. eboracensis are clearly a better match than those of N. pelagicus. Just bear in mind that this is no guarantee.
PS The spot-on focus of the photo provided excellent detail. Good job!
