The bent-toed gecko (Cyrtodactylus wayakonei Nguyen, Kingsada, Rosler, Auer and Ziegler, 2010) has been recorded for the first time in China. Here, we provide descriptions of specimens from Yunnan, China. This species was distinguished from all congeners by the following characteristics: 7-8 supralabials; 9-10 infralabials; dorsal tubercles smooth to slightly keeled; 17-19 rows of dorsal tubercles; 6-8 precloacal pores in both sexes; femoral scales not enlarged; no femoral pores; subcaudals somewhat enlarged and broadened; and tail tubercles flat and smooth.
