Thank you Yingyod Lapwong for confirming the id of this species for us

EXTRA - Photo Specific Information:
This specimen is well camouflaged on this rock, making the detail of the foot hard to see.
Somehow the toe twisted slightly, so we can see the underneath of it.
General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
Notice the unusual toes for Gehyra.
They appear to have suction pads AND still one claw in the middle of each toe.
Only 4 toes, of 5, have a claw (on each foot)
