I posted this in the what kind forum as well but about half the time I see people just get redirected straight to geckos so here I am

I found this in Seminole Canyon just south of Big Bend in Texas. According to my Peterson guide the only gecko that looks anything like this in Texas is a Texas Banded Gecko but the Audubon Guide shows a picture and describes a species that is an even better match: the Tuscan Banded Gecko which just gets into Texas but is still some distance from where I found it. I do not have the Audubon guide on my now so cannot double check the latin name on the Tuscan. I tried google but can't find any info on that name other than a single photo. The gecko was just uner 5 inches long. Can any of you say for certain if this is a Texas Banded or a Tuscan Banded? Thanks.
