    How can you be so sure H.bitorquatus?
    We only have a location and a sketchy description to go on.
    As Geckoman says, without a photo we are just guessing.

    It could be a Heteronotia binoei.

    don't see bynoes on trees under bark to often.... also it is way to far south east for them at cowra.
    Also only geckos recorded in cowra local government area is marbled gecko, eastern stone gecko and thick tail gecko.
