English term or phrase: **ventrally-flattened tail with a fringe**
An unidentified gecko captured in secondary forest/garden habitat at XXXXXXXXXX was superficially similar to L. and it had a round original tail that lacked a latero-ventral fringe of pointed scales (cf. a **ventrally-flattened tail with a fringe**).

Some reference would be appreciated. Thanks
