The Uroplatus ebenaui species group is a monophyletic (descended from a single common ancestor) group of small to intermediate-sized geckos, all of which are more laterally compressed than dorsoventrally, and all of which have at least a small fringe on their tail that in some species is long and expanded to look like a complete leaf, while in others it is small and resembles a spear-head in its shape. All species occur in forest, ranging from dry lowland habitats in e.g. U. ebenaui, to moist montane forest in e.g. U. kelirambo.
Many species from the Uroplatus ebenaui species group were described between 2015 and 2020 thanks to intensive work on the taxonomy of this group by Fanomezana M. Ratsoavina and colleagues.
