Abstract

Hemiphyllodactylus typus is a widespread but low abundant parthenogenetic taxon, which is widely distributed through Southeast Asia and the entire tropical Pacific Ocean of New Guinea to some other Oceanic Islands. The present study has reviewed the data from a combination of literature together with our unpublished field records. A total of 36 localities of H. typus were detected, including four recent observations or repeated observations. Some information regarding the natural history, autecology and biogeography of H. typus in Sri Lanka are given.
