|Types||Syntypes: MNHNP, but not located by SALVADOR 1982: 63 (Boulenger 1921 mentioned 10 syntypes in MNHN).|
|Comment||Genetically, A. lineomaculatus is nested within A. erythrurus. Further analysis may thus reveal that it is synonymous to the latter species (HARRIS et al. 2004). Recent molecular analyses do not support the specific differentiation of A. e. lineomaculatus and A. e. belli, indicating that both morphotypes are probably ecotypical adaptations to different habitats (Fonseca et al., 2009).|
Diagnosis: Strongly keeled dorsal scales, slim pointed snout, concave frontal (with sharply angled lateral edges), internasal usually divided, except north of Rabat, usually one or two granules, except north of Rabat where they are generally absent, 1st supraocular usually fragmented into more than six scales or granules, subocular usually separated from the lip by the 4th and 5th supralabials, the 4th being usually fragmented at the rear by a small trapezoidal scale in localities north of Rabat (from BONS & GENIEZ 1995).
