Abstract

Iguana is a large-bodied clade of extant iguanid including the species Iguana delicatissima and Iguana iguana. Historically, these two species have been diagnosed based primarily on a single external morphological character: presence or absence of the subtympanic plate. We further diagnose both species based on the shapes of skull bones and provide illustrations of the Iguana delicatissima skull.
