Abstract

We describe a new species of the genus Lepidophyma from the Pacific lowlands of Guerrero, southern Mexico. Previously referred to as L. smithii, the new taxon is distinguished by a series of morphological characteristics, principally higher numbers of gulars, paravertebrals, and lateral tubercle rows. This new species increases the number of described Lepidophyma to 20 species.
