23' Dorsal scales approximately same form and size flat or keeled; ventral flat or keeled. Male dewlap with another color and pattern 24

24. With 19 or more enlarged subdigital lamellae in the fourth toe between the second and third phalange .25 25.Caudal crest present; 19 at 21 enlarged subdigital lamellae in the fourth toe between the second and third phalange, male dewlap red with six to nine arrays cream color and four black points among each array Anolis sulcifrons 25' Caudal crest absent; Lack of a interparietal scale. 25 lamellae under second and third phalanges of fourth toe. Supraciliary scales are unusually well developed and the head scales very distinctly keeled. Dewlap pale blue in males. Anolis propinquus 25’a. 19 lamellae under second and third phalanges of fourth toe; interparietal, certain supraorbital scales, and sublabial scales of great size.

Smooth or weakly keeled or rugose head scales, Dark olive brown and greenish in color. Smooth head scales, 18-24 subdigital lamellae in the fourth toe between the second and third phalange. It is short-legged like A. danieli and A. apollinaris. Anolis fraseri Green background coloration, but always with a dorsal pattern of oblique bands or rows of spots, sometimes also an ocellus in front of the shoulder. The superciliaries squarish and flat, the suboculars always in contact with the supralabials.
