Abstract

We studied scutellation and morphometrics in the gymnophthalmid lizards of the genus Alopoglossus. Six species are recognized: Alopoglossus angulatus, A. atriventris, A. buckleyi, A. copii, A. festae, and A. lehmanni. We place the nominal species Alopoglossus andeanus Ruibal in the synonymy of A. angulatus. We provide detailed descriptions and head scalation illustrations of each species, an identification key, and a distribution map.
