Cnemidophorus lemniscatus (Squamata: Teiidae) on Cayo Cochino Pequeño, Honduras: Extent of Island Occupancy, Natural History, and Conservation Status
—Cayo Cochino Pequeño (CCP) is a western Caribbean island with a surface area of only 0.64 km in the Cayos Cochinos Archipelago, Department of Islas de la Bahía, Honduras. It is relatively
Snakes on the menu: A predation attempt by a Central American Indigo Snake (Drymarchon melanurus) on a Central American Boa (Boa imperator) and remains of a Mexican Parrot Snake (Leptophis mexicanus) identified in feces on Utila Island, Honduras

Not withering on the evolutionary vine: systematic revision of the Brown Vine Snake (Reptilia: Squamata: Oxybelis) from its northern distribution
TLDR
The authors' molecular analyses find three major lineages of Oxybelis with a sister relationship between O. brevirostris, O. aeneus complex, and O. wilsoni, suggesting cryptic diversity and novel taxa in that clade as well.
Divergence in morphology, but not habitat use, despite low genetic differentiation among insular populations of the lizard Anolis lemurinus in Honduras
TLDR
Although the authors found no differences among sexes in habitat use, males had narrower pelvic girdles and longer toe pads on both islands, and the data suggest that either recent selection has operated differentially on males despite low genetic differentiation, or that they display phenotypic plasticity in response to environmental variation.
The Anoles (Reptilia: Squamata: Dactyloidae: Anolis: Norops) of Honduras. Systematics, Distribution, and Conservation
Abstract In this review, we provide thorough descriptions of the 39 named species of the family Dactyloidae (commonly referred to as anoles) we recognize as occurring in Honduras. We follow two
A new species of Phyllodactylus (Reptilia, Squamata, Gekkonoidea, Phyllodactylidae) from Isla de Guanaja in the Honduran Bay Islands.
Morphological and molecular analyses of the Phyllodactylus populations on the Honduran Bay Islands of Guanaja, Roatán, and Utila demonstrate that the Guanaja population is best treated as a species
Two additional new species of Sphaerodactylus (Reptilia, Squamata, Gekkonoidea, Sphaerodactylidae) from the Honduran Bay Islands.
TLDR
Two new species of geckos of the genus Sphaerodactylus from the Bay Islands of Honduras are described, one of which belongs to the S. millepunctatus species group, which is centered in Middle America, and the other which iscentered in the Greater Antilles.
Two new species of geckos from Honduras and resurrection of Sphaerodactylus continentalis Werner from the synonymy of Sphaerodactylus millepunctatus Hallowell (Reptilia, Squamata, Gekkonoidea, Sphaerodactylidae)
TLDR
The results of a morphological and molecular study on various Honduran populations of the Sphaerodactylus millepunctatus complex suggest the possibility that other cryptic species might occur in the concept of S. continentalis.
Population genetics of the Honduran spiny-tailed iguana Ctenosaura melanosterna: implications for conservation and management
TLDR
This study demonstrates a situation, most likely increasingly common in conservation, in which only the high priority areas remain, and indicates that there are 2 ESUs corresponding to geographically and ecologically distinct island and mainland habi- tats.
