CommentAmeiva aggerecusans sp. nov. has not or only hardly dilated postbrachials, a maximum known snout-vent length of 99.3 mm, 10–12 longitudinal rows of ventral plates, 73–92 midbody granules, 31–39 lamellae under the fourth toe, and the females and juveniles of the species normally exhibit a cream-colored vertebral stripe on a dark dorsum ground color. 
Etymology“The specific epithet is an agglutination of the Latin nomen “agger” which means dam and the verb “recusare” which means reject. As in Ameiva nodam sp. nov. this name was chosen to further emphasize our protest against the possible dam constructions along the Marañón river.” (KOCH et al. 2013)
