Cyrtodactylus adleri is a species of bent-toed gecko found in the Nicobar Islands of India. It was earlier thought to be conspecific with C. rubidus. It can be differentiated from it by its dark spots (vs. dark bands) on the dorsum; differences in the midventral and postnasal scales; and presence of the pre-anal groove.[2]
