We revise the species of anoles occurring along the Pacific versant of Mexico west of the Isthmus de Tehuantepec in the states of Oaxaca, Guerrero, and Puebla. Based on our analyses of morphological and molecular genetic data, we recognize 21 species, six of which we describe as new (i.e., Anolis carlliebi sp. nov., A. immaculogularis sp. nov., A. nietoi sp. nov., A. sacamecatensis sp. nov., A. stevepoei sp. nov., and A. zapotecorum sp. nov.). Furthermore, we synonymize Anolis forbesi Smith… 
A revision of the Mexican Anolis (Reptilia, Squamata, Dactyloidae) from the Pacific versant west of the Isthmus de Tehuantepec in the states of Oaxaca, Guerrero, and Puebla, with the description of six new species: Addendum.
This research presents a new perspective on the history and archaeology of Iztacala, Mexico, and investigates the role of tourism and its role in the development of modern medicine.
A new species of semiaquatic Anolis (Squamata: Dactyloidae) from Oaxaca and Veracruz, Mexico
A partitioned Bayesian analysis of the mitochondrial genes encoding ND1 (part), ND2, and the intervening tRNAs revealed that A. purpuronectes are genetically distinct, nested within the A. schiedii group as sister species, and most closely related to a clade composed of A. cymbops, A. milleri, and A. parvicirculatus.
Two new species of the Norops pachypus complex (Squamata, Dactyloidae) from Costa Rica
Two new species of anoles from Costa Rica are described, which previously have been referred to as Norops pachypus or N. tropidolepis, from which they differ by molecular distances and in hemipenial morphology, as well as in subtle differences in male dewlap color and several scalation characters.
A Cryptic New Species of Anole (Squamata: Dactyloidae) from the Lenca Highlands of Honduras, Previously Referred to as Norops crassulus (Cope, 1864)
A cryptic new species of Norops Wagler, 1830, Norops caceresae is described from mixed transitional and broadleaf cloud forest formations in the Lenca Highlands of southwestern Honduras, despite it being entirely disjunct (> 100 km) from any of those populations.
Anolis nebulosus (Wiegmann, 1834) is one of the most widely distributed and common Anolis in Mexico, occurring from Chihuahua and Sonora in the north to Guerrero, Morelos, and Puebla to the south
A new cryptic species of Anolis lizard from northwestern South America (Iguanidae, Dactyloinae)
Abstract A new species of Anolis lizard from the Andean slopes of southwestern Colombia and northwestern Ecuador, from between 1187 and 2353 m in elevation, is described. The new species can be
Morphological SiMilarity in a Zone of SyMpatry Between two AbroniA ( SquaMata : anguidae ) , with coMMentS on ecology and conServation
It is shown that the arboreal alligator lizards Abronia graminea and A. taeniata are broadly sympatric, and analysis of diagnostic morphology shows that the two taxa lack obvious character displacement and are poorly differentiated in the zone of sympatry.
It is shown that the herpetofauna of Colima consists of 148 species, of which 110 are reptiles and 38 are amphibians, with five introduced species, and that other species already known from the state have been ignored in the most recent state list.
A new distributional record for the Martin del Campo’s Arboreal Alligator Lizard (Abronia martindelcampoi) with comments on the biogeography of arboreal Alligator-lizards in the Sierra Madre del Sur, Mexico
A new record of the Mexican endemic A. martindelcampoi is reported that represents the easternmost limit of the species and the lowest known elevational record.
Small, rare and trendy: traits and biogeography of lizards described in the 21st century
The traits of newly described lizard taxa are examined, and those of species described earlier are compared, to predict where new species will be found, what traits they have, and whether they are likely to be more extinction-prone than well-known species.


A revision of the Central American species related to Anolis pentaprion with the resurrection of A. beckeri and the description of a new species (Squamata: Polychrotidae)
Based on differences in coloration, morphometrics, and scalation, seven species of anoles related to Anolis pentaprion in Central America are recognized and the name A. beckeri Boulenger is resurrected for the pentAPrion-like populations of anole distributed from southeastern Mexico to northern Nicaragua.
A New Satellite of the Anolis gadovii Species Swarm (Reptilia: Sauria) in Mexico
A member of the gadovii group of Anolis, having perfectly smooth ventrals and large supraoculars forming a distinct disc of 2-3 large and 1-2'smaller scales, total of 4 on each side.
A Contribution to the Knowledge of Anolis macrinii Smith, 1968 (Reptilia: Squamata: Dactyloidae)
The holotype of this species was reported erroneously to be an adult male but actually is a female; the confusion might have arisen from the moderate-sized dewlap present in adult females.
Central American Lizards Related to Anolis pentaprion : Two New Species from the Cordillera de Talamanca BY
Anolis vociferans, which lives on the drier Pacific slopes and squeaks when handled, undergoes an ontogenetic transformation of the ventral granules-from obliquely conical and juxtaposed to keeled and imbricate.
A Revision of the Anolis sericeus Complex with the Resurrection of A. wellbornae and the Description of a New Species (Squamata: Polychrotidae)
A new species of anole (genus Anolis) from Honduras formerly referred to as Anolis (or Norops) sericeus is described, and Anolis wellbornae is resurrected for the populations of anoles on the Pacific versant of Nuclear Central America.
Evidence for the recognition of two species of Anolis formerly referred to as A. tropidogaster (Squamata: Dactyloidae)
Based on differences in hemipenial morphology, male dewlap coloration, pholidosis, and 16S mtDNA, we recognize twospecies of anoles related to what was formerly referred to as Anolis tropidogaster:
Variation and Systematics of the Anolis sericeus Complex (Sauria: Iguanidae)
This book discusses the evolution and systematics of the iguanid genus Uma and its relation to the evolution of other North American desert reptiles and the relationships of the horned lizard genus Phrynosoma.
A new species of pine anole from the Sierra Madre del Sur in Oaxaca, Mexico (Reptilia, Squamata, Dactyloidae: Anolis).
We describe the new species Anolis peucephilus sp. nov. from the Pacific versant of southern Mexico. Anolis peucephilus differs from all congeners by having a combination of (1) smooth ventral
It is time for a new classification of anoles (Squamata: Dactyloidae)
This taxonomy eliminates problems of paraphyly inherent in previous classifications by elevating eight majorlineages to generic status, providing diagnoses of those genera, and then doing the same for species groups within each genus, and appears to provide a stable classification for at least 95% of the 387 species currently recognized.
Contribution to the Herpetology of Sonora, Mexico: Descriptions of New Subspecies of Snakes (Micruroides euryxanthus and Lampropeltis getulus) and Miscellaneous Collecting Notes
The basis for this report lies largely in a collection of reptiles and amphibians made in Sonora by the authors in the course of three trips to that state, which yielded several new records for the state.
