In a tour-de-force for anole biology, Poe et al. (2017) provide the most complete phylogenetic analysis of members of the family Dactyloidae yet attempted. The contribution is remarkable in the completeness of sampled taxa and breath of included characters. It is equally remarkable in the concordance of their consensus tree with the topology of previous phylogenetic inferences. Thus, the creation of a near-complete data matrix of extant taxa demonstrates that an asymptote in tree topological… 
Cryptic Diversity, but to What Extent? Discordance Between Single-Locus Species Delimitation Methods Within Mainland Anoles (Squamata: Dactyloidae) of Northern Central America
TLDR
Diversity of mainland species of anole lizards from the Chortís Block biogeographical province of northern Central America is explored using a DNA barcoding approach, but the lack of congruence between analyses demonstrates the importance of considering multiple analytical methods when dealing with single-locus datasets.
A Cryptic New Species of Anole (Squamata: Dactyloidae) from the Lenca Highlands of Honduras, Previously Referred to as Norops crassulus (Cope, 1864)
TLDR
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.
Biogeography, Systematics, and Ecomorphology of Pacific Island Anoles
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of anoles from these islands in light of the greater anole phylogeny finds that two species of solitary anoles (D. agassizi and N. townsendi) diverged from mainland ancestors prior to the emergence of their respective islands.
A revision of the genus Audantia of Hispaniola with description of four new species (Reptilia: Squamata: Dactyloidae)
TLDR
The main focus is on the populations of anoles formerly referred to as Audantia cybotes which are demonstrated to be a complex of seven distinct species, and provide a dichotomous key for the identification of the 14 species of the genusAudantia occuring on Hispaniola.
History of Squamate Lizard Dactyloidae from the Eastern Caribbean, Origins of Anolis from Martinique, Zanndoli Matinik (Dactyloa roquet)
TLDR
The history of the Dactyloidae of the eastern Caribbean that is retrace is based on the most recent data publications, in terms of research in molecular systematics, crossed with the data of the geological history of this geographical region of the Eastern Caribbean.
Non-Avian Reptiles of the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: status of knowledge and commented list
TLDR
The checklist presented here provides a comprehensive database for further research on the herpetofauna of the Brazilian Atlantic Forest.
Keratophagy in two lizards from Isla María Cleofas, Mexico
TLDR
It is suggested that the dry environmental conditions on the island during certain times of the year might drive both species to keratophagy.
Distribution of Savage’s Anole, Dactyloa savagei (Poe and Ryan 2017) (Squamata: Dactyloidae), in Costa Rica
