Among introduced species in the Galápagos are three species of geckos – Gonatodes caudiscutatus, Lepidodactylus lugubris, Phyllodactylus reissii – occurring on the islands of Isabela, San Cristóbal, and Santa Cruz. Here we report the first record of a fourth invasive species of gecko from Isabela, as well as the first record of P. reissii from the same island.
