Loveridge described two new geckos from Angola, Afroedura karroica bogerti and
Pachydactylus scutatus angolensis. The descriptions of both species have vague and confusing
type localities and refinements are suggested based on early expedition reports and historical
accounts from the region. Numerous new distribution records are reported for both species from
expeditions undertaken from 1956–2016 by the authors or their colleagues. The taxonomic
status of both species has changed, but new material from diverse habitats, altitudes and
geological substrates indicates that further taxonomic adjustments are likely in order to reflect
additional cryptic diversity.
