Thank you for the challenge ;)

I am fairly confident this is PAroedura sp. but I am not quote sure which.

There is a relatively new species, P. hordiesi which this picture most resembles.

Another possibility is P. karstophila.

Ahh yes, the toes are longer than expected.

Maybe the locality will help.

Got word from my friend about the location, it was on the Tsingy de Bemaraha Nature Reserve were it was fotograft in a cave. she alo found a pic on de web that resembles the gecko very much sadly the article does not mention a name.
the slender physics and long toes with colored toe tip does in my vieuw differ from the pics i could found off other Paroedura sp.

Okay, my last guess would be some sort of Paragehyra sp.
