    Just found it floating face down(its dead) in a fishtank in my herp room...... I thought it was an excapee Heternonotia binoei at frist but its bigger and dodgy lookin ( still a nice looking gecko).
    Its not an Hemidactylus frenatus wich is weird becuase they seem to be the only gecko we see around the house.

    I am thinking its an Lepidodactylus lugubris ???? But I am only going by pics I have seen on the net , and they shoulden't be down in south brissy shoud they? Bloody weird , pity its dead but if its an lugubris its the best place for it I guess :D

    Sad thing is it looks better than some of the Gehyra I keep :lol::lol::lol:

    It is 100% NOT H. binoei I know what they look like as I keep a few color forms.......

    It has a smooth body , not raised bumps/spikes like the binoeis - yer what Hornet said
