Abstract We describe a new species of Tupinambis from central South America in a transitional region between Amazonia, Cerrado, and Pantanal. The new species differs from its congeners by the number of femoral pores, posterior gulars, and mesoptychial scales and by color pattern. It is partially sympatric with Tupinambis cuzcoensis, Tupinambis longilineus, Tupinambis quadrilineatus, and maybe also with Tupinambis teguixin, but in general terms they tend to substitute one another in space… Expand

Diet and food ontogeny of the lizard Tupinambis matipu Silva et al. 2018 (Squamata: Teiidae) in Central Brazil
The results indicate that T. matipu is a generalist lizard, consuming many food items, which fruits are the most important item in its diet, however, the species uses food resources in different importance proportions, according to its age class. Expand

Lizards of Brazilian Amazonia (Reptilia:Squamata)
A zoogeographical analysis based on the combined distribution maps of the various species shows a main division in Amazonia of a western and an eastern fauna, and a southwestern group is also recognised and, although defined by a smaller number of species, a Guianan group. Expand

Cryptic, Sympatric Diversity in Tegu Lizards of the Tupinambis teguixin Group (Squamata, Sauria, Teiidae) and the Description of Three New Species
Molecular and morphological evidence that the type species of the genus Tupinambis, T. teguixin, is genetically divergent across its range and four distinct clades some of which are sympatric are presented. Expand
A new species of Stenocercus (Squamata, Iguania) from central-western Brazil with a key to Brazilian Stenocercus
Seven species of Stenocercus from Brazil are recognized and a dichotomous key to assist in the identification of specimens is provided and it is very likely that S. caducus occurs in Brazil because it has been reported from geographically close areas. Expand

Molecular Phylogenetics and Conservation of Tupinambis (Sauria: Teiidae)
Genetic or morphological variation in these lizards is examined and incongruence between the molecular data and morphology suggests that T. duseni and T. rufescens may have undergone extensive and recent morphological evolution or there has been introgression of mitochondrial DNA between these species.

Review of Teiid Morphology with a Revised Taxonomy and Phylogeny of the Teiidae (Lepidosauria: Squamata)
A new taxonomy of the Teiidae is proposed based on recovered evolutionary history and numerous morphological characters surveyed in this study, which is consistent with well-established biogeographic patterns of Neotropical vertebrates and explains extreme morphological divergence in such genera as Kentropyx and Aurivela.
