The chemical composition of secretions of precloacal pores from two populations of the lizard Liolaemusfabiani (Puilar and Punta-Brava) were compared. This is an endemic species from the Atacama Salt Flat (26°46'S 68°14'W; 2400 m) in northern Chile, restricted to the internal lakes of the salt flat. Interpopulational differences in the chemical composition of the secretions were expected considering that populations have genetic differences and are subject to different thermal conditions. By… 
Intersexual Differences in Chemical Composition of Precloacal Gland Secretions of the Amphisbaenian Blanus cinereus
TLDR
The abundance of steroids and waxy esters in secretions of both male and female amphisbaenians may be useful to scent mark underground tunnels to facilitate orientation by these organisms.
Skin-derived semiochemicals of the lacertid lizard Acanthodactylus boskianus
TLDR
While the compounds characterizing skin slough are qualitatively similar to femoral secretions, they could represent an adaptation to hot and dry habitats of A. boskianus, there is not enough evidence to support their possible role as chemosignals, and behavioral experiments should be performed to test the possible use of skin shedding in intraspecific communication.
Chemical compounds from the preanal gland secretions of the male tree agama (Acanthocercus atricollis) (fam. Agamidae).
TLDR
This work found 60 lipophilic compounds in preanal gland secretions of the male tree agama (Acanthocercus atricollis) (fam. Agamidae), including steroids, fatty acids, ketones, and other minor compounds, which are compared with those present in other lizard species and discussed their potential function in social behaviour.
Chemical Compounds from the Preanal Gland Secretions of the Male Tree Agama (Acanthocercus atricollis) (Fam. Agamidae)
TLDR
This work found 60 lipophilic compounds in preanal gland secretions of the male tree agama (Acanthocercus atricollis) (fam. Agamidae), including steroids, fatty acids, ketones, and other minor compounds, which are compared with those present in other lizard species and discussed their potential function in social behaviour.
Lipophilic Compounds from the Femoral Gland Secretions of Male Hungarian Green Lizards, Lacerta viridis
TLDR
40 lipophilic compounds found in femoral gland secretions of male green lizards (Lacerta viridis) are compared with those previously found in other closely related green lizard species, and how phylogenetical differences and/or environmental conditions could be responsible for the differential presence of chemicals in different lizard species are discussed.
Lipids in the Femoral Gland Secretions of Male Schreiber’s Green Lizards, Lacerta schreiberi
TLDR
The secretion of the femoral glands of male Schreiber’s green lizards (Lacerta schreiberi) contains 51 lipophilic compounds, including several steroids, α-tocopherol, n-C9 ton-C22 carboxylic acids and their esteres, and minor components such as alcohols between C12 and C24, two lactones, two ketones, and squalene.
Comparative morphology of Liolaemus lizards precloacal glands
TLDR
The morphology and histology of lizard precloacal glands is investigated for the first time, by studying three Liolaemus species that differ in the presence of pores in their cloaca, and shows that the number of pores varies among species and sexes, but not between ages of a species.
Chemical Constituents of the Femoral Gland Secretions of Male Tegu Lizards (Tupinambis merianae) (Family Teiidae)
TLDR
49 lipophilic compounds in femoral gland secretions of male tegu lizards (Tupinambis merianae) (fam. Teiidae) are found, including a very high proportion of carboxylic acids and their esters ranging between n-C8 andN-C20 (mainly octadecanoic and 9,12-octadecadienoic acids), and the potential function of these compounds in secretions is discussed.

Chemical Composition of Precloacal Secretions of Liolaemus Lizards
TLDR
The number of precloacal pores correlated positively with altitude and negatively with latitude, suggesting that lizards produce more secretions under harsh environments.
Chemical properties of femoral gland secretions in the desert iguana,Dipsosaurus dorsalis
TLDR
Investigation of the chemistry of femoral gland secretions in the desert iguana, dipsosaurus dorsalis, finds that they strongly absorb longwave ultraviolet light, a feature that may be important in the localization of secretion deposits in the environment.

TLDR
Ctenoblepharys adspersa is a highly derived arenicolous lizard that inhabits the sandy coast of central Peru, but shares no derived characteristics with either Phymaturus or Liolaemus other than those that diagnose LiolaEMinae.
Intraspecific Chemical Recognition in the Lizard Liolaemus tenuis
TLDR
In both seasons, males and females of the tree-dwelling lizard Liolaemus tenuis show intraspecific chemical recognition during breeding and postreproductive seasons, indicating a recognition of a familiar place, probably a chemical self-recognition.
Chemical Exploratory Behavior in the Lizard Liolaemus bellii
TLDR
The information available at present for Liolaemus suggests that recognition of own territory is more important than recognition of conspecifics, and the latter seems to be associated mainly to the reproductive season.
Lingual responces to chemical fractions of urodaeal glandular pheromone to the skink Eumeces laticeps
TLDR
Chemical fractions of the female sex pheromone of Eumeces laticeps were extracted from whole urodaeal glands and bioassayed for their ability to induce elevated tongue-flicking rates in conspecific males, finding pheromonal activity appears to reside in the neutral lipid fraction but in none of the others tested.
Evaluation of Individual Components of Plum Odor As Potential Attractants for Adult Plum Curculios
TLDR
It is suggested that the use of ethyl isovalerate and/or limonene as odor attractants offers potential to increase the efficacy of current traps for monitoring PCs immigrating into fruit orchards during spring.

Sex recognition in the leopard gecko,Eublepharis macularius (Sauria: Gekkonidae) Possible mediation by skin-derived semiochemicals
TLDR
An initial survey of hexane-extracted skin lipids from male and female geckoes revealed fatty acids common to both sexes, but several steroid analogs of cholesterol were unique to males while long-chain methyl ketones wereunique to females.
Some properties of a pheromone allowing individual recognition, from the scats of an Australian lizard, Egernia striolata
TLDR
It is inferred that the Australian lizard, Egernia striolata, can distinguish between scats of different individuals on the basis of signals they receive from a complex combination of chemicals.
