Gehyra is a genus of geckos known commonly as Web-toed Geckos or Dtellas. Dtellas are moderately sized geckos; the species have a wide range of habitat, covering most of the Oceania and Melanesian Islands up to Ryukyu Islands and Thailand.

Gehyra species have toepads and powerful claws. Like some other geckos they also have a tendency to drop strips of skin if handled carelessly.
