Florida presently has a large number (44) of established non-native amphibians and reptiles, 36 of which are lizards. There are currently one native and four non-native teiid lizards in Florida, and difficulty arises when trying to distinguish them from other similar species, especially in small individuals and/or deteriorated or faded preserved specimens. Because of the potential for their misidentifications in both the field and laboratory, we present a key to the established teiid species in Florida along with their current geographic distributions.
