The International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature has declined to use its plenary power to designate a neotype for Anolis chlorocyanus Duméril & Bibron, 1837. As a result, the specific name Anolis chlorocyanus Duméril & Bibron, 1837, will have priority over A. coelestinus Cope, 1862 as the valid name for the well-known, predominantly North Island Hispaniolan anole species. The species known as Anolis chlorocyanus since Dunn (1930) needs to be renamed.
