Abstract

A new fossil leaf-toed gecko, Euleptes gallica sp. nov., is described from the early Miocene locality Montaigu, France. The species is the third record of leaf-toed geckos in the early Miocene of Europe. A palaeobiogeographical interpretation suggests that the modern form is a relic endemite of the western Mediterranean region which survived the extinction of its congeneric relatives by being isolated on the Corso-Sardinian microplate, which left its former position at the beginning of the Miocene.
