The genus Hemidactylus Oken, 1817, is a large, widely distributed genus belonging to the most speciose gekkonid lizard family in the world. The reticulated leaf-toed gecko Hemidactylus reticulatus Beddome, 1870 was first reported based on specimens collected from under stones on rocky ground in Kollegal (12°9'N, 77°6'E), Karnataka, India. The distribution range of this Indian endemic gecko is Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. In this note, we present an updated distribution of H. reticulatus in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, India based on our sightings and collection records.
