Description of two new species similar to Anolis insignis (Squamata: Iguanidae) and resurrection of Anolis (Diaphoranolis) brooksi

Abstract

—The spectacular giant anole lizard Anolis insignis is widely distributed but infrequently collected outside of northern Costa Rica. We recently collected several individuals similar to Anolis insignis from localities in Panama and southern Costa Rica. These populations differ from type locality A. insignis in male dewlap color and morphology. We associate one set of these populations with Anolis (Diaphoranolis) brooksi Barbour from Darién, Panama, and describe two additional populations as new species.
