The gecko of Kotschy (scient. Mediodactylus kotschyi) is a common lizard species on Crete, which is very similar to the Moorish Gecko and the Turkish Gecko, but belongs to a separate species. The major difference of this lizard with the other two gecko species mentioned is that it has a thin body and its fingers do not have suction cups.

Several subspecies have been identified throughout Crete: M. kotschyi bartoni in western Crete, M. kotschyi kalypsae in Gavdos and M.kotschyi wettsteini in the islets of East Crete.
