Akihito futuna, new species, is described on the basis of material collected from Futuna Island. It is distinguished from A. vanuatu in having less premaxillary teeth in males (4-7 vs 7-17) and tricuspid premaxillary teeth (4-7 vs 30-37) in females; more caniniform premaxillary teeth (2-4 vs 0-1) in females; lower scale counts in lateral scales (19-20 vs 24-32), in transverse forward series (5 vs 8-9), and in transverse back series in females (8-9 vs 9-14).
