  • Abstract We identify instances of parallel morphological evolution in North American scincid lizards of the Eumeces skiltonianus species group and provide evidence that this system is consistent with a model of ecological speciation. The group consists of three putative species divided among two morphotypes, the small‐bodied and striped E. skil‐tonianus and E. lagunensis versus the large‐bodied and typically uniform‐colored E. gilberti. Members of the group pass through markedly similar… CONTINUE READING
