Abstract

An adult male Mabuya, recently collected from Lanyu Island, Taiwan, was identified as Mabuya cumingi, a species hitherto known only from Luzon Island of the Philippines, on the basis of small body size (56.6mm in snout-vent length), embossed dorsal head scales, five scales beneath toe I, and the presence of a dark middorsal stripe. Occurrence of this species on Lanyu Island was also confirmed by additional sighting records. Mabuya cumingi is regarded as a fourth reptile species representing a dispersal to this island from the Philippines.
