Knob Pale Tail Geckos (laevissimus Nephrurus); Mertens 1958
SVL 93mm, the Gecko Tail Knob Blade is almost identical in size and dimensions for medium tail Gecko. The body is almost devoid of tubers and patterns, the tail is filled with enlarged white tubers.

Banded Knob Tail Gecko (Nephrurus wheeleri); Loveridge 1932

Nephrurus cinctus wheeleri; This subspecies is what we find in the pet trade. The color and general description are quite similar with a subtle change in the basic color and structure of the head. The final difference is that the cinctus is cut in 5 bands instead of 4. This subspecies is found in rocky outcrops in spinifex in the Pilbara region.
