Anolischrysolepis Duméril & Bibron, 1837 (Reptilia, Squamata): precedence given over Draconura nitens Wagler, 1830
Abstract

The specific name Anolis chrysolepis Duméril & Bibron, 1837 is conserved for a polytypic species of lizard that is geographically widespread in northern South America. The name was threatened by the name Draconura nitens Wagler, 1830 currently used as a senior synonym of Anolis chrysolepis Duméril & Bibron, 1837. The Commission has given precedence to the name Anolis chrysolepis Duméril & Bibron, 1837, over the name Draconura nitens Wagler, 1830, whenever the two are considered to be synonyms.
