Abstract

The article presents the results of selection and analysis of variance of scale patterns of the mandibula of Hemidactylus platyurus (Schneider, 1797) (Reptilia: Sauria: Gekkonidae) from the cities of Vientiane (Laos) and Phnom Penh (Cambodia). Marked variations by 10 groups consist of mental, postmental, chin and small scales touching second postmental. There is an increase in the number of individuals with a T-shaped postmental scale and with the third chin scale in Phnom Penh. The variant with one small scale touching simultaneously two chin scales was presented more rarely than the variant when one small scale was touching one of the chin scales in the sample from Phnom Penh.
