Eutropis multifasciata is the largest species of Eutropis that occurs in the Philippines, and is not closely related to the other species in the Philippine radiation. It exhibits a broad geographic range throughout Southeast Asia, with little genetic differentiation across this range. E. multifasciata appears to have excellent dispersal abilities both through natural and human mediated means. It is one of the more conspicuous lizards in this area of the world due to it's size, as well as because it is diurnally active and thrives in disturbed lowland habitats.
