Quedenfeldtia is a small genus of attractive gecko species, commonly known as atlas day geckos. Despite their common name, they are not part of the day gecko genus (Phelsuma) and do not resemble them in any way.

Etymology

The generic name, Quedenfeldtia, is in honor of German naturalist Max Quedenfeldt (1851–1891).

Species

Two species are recognized as being valid.

  • Quedenfeldtia moerens (Chabanaud, 1916)
  • Quedenfeldtia trachyblepharus (Boettger, 1873) – Atlas day gecko
  • Nota bene: A binomial authority in parentheses indicates that the species was originally described in a genus other than Quedenfeldtia.
