granulatus or maculatus??
Dear users..

I found this gecko below some loose bark of a Titoki tree, at Mahana Reserve in Raukawa, Hawkes Bay. The area is a 140 acres of mixed Titoki, Kawa kawa, young Kauri, Lemonwood, etc Elevation 200m

My thought is that it is a Woodworthia maculatus, but I didn't get a good opportunity to look inside it's mouth or check the base of it's feet, so I am a tad dubious.

Could it be the highly Cryptic Forest Gecko??

My photos are bigger than 600k, so I have linked to my FAcebook, which I hope is open to all public.
