Paratypes. All from the Mexican state of Oaxaca: GK-4502 (IBH uncatalogued), same collecting data as holotype; UMMZ 99820 (two specimens), from Ixtlán de Juárez, collected 11 May 1947 by Hellmuth Wagner; UTA R-8421, from 0.9 mi N (by road) El Cerezal on Mexican Hwy 175, Sierra Aloapaneca, by Jonathan A. Campbell; UTA R-52816–17, from Tutepetongo, Municipio Cuicatlán, 17.732°N, 96.866°W, 1619 m, by Eric N. Smith; MVZ 164275–76, from Ixtlán de Juárez, Vivero Rancho Teja, 17°19’50’’N, 96°29’14’’W.
GK-4502 (IBH uncatalogued), MVZ 144181, 164275–76, and UMMZ 99820 are adult females, UTA R-52816 is an adult male, and UTA R-8421 is a subadult male.
|Diagnosis||Diagnosis. A small species (our Species B of the Anolis quercorum complex, see above; SVL in largest male 46.0 mm, largest female 41.0 mm) of the genus Anolis (sensu Poe 2004) that differs from all Mexican and Central American anoles except A. quercorum and a species described below (our Species C of the A. quercorum complex) by having a combination of (1) strongly keeled ventral scales; (2) usually a patch of three greatly enlarged supraocular scales; (3) 10–12 rows of slightly to moderately enlarged dorsal scales that are smaller than ventral scales; (4) short hind legs, longest toe of adpressed hind leg usually reaching to ear opening or to a point between ear opening and eye, ratio shank length/SVL 0.23–0.25; (5) circumnasal usually in contact with first supralabial; and (6) a large pink dewlap in males and a very small red or pink dewlap in females. Anolis carlliebi differs from A. quercorum and the species described below (our Species C of the A. quercorum complex) in the ranges and average values of several morphometric and pholidotic characters (see Table 9), most obvious in (1) number of middorsal scales in one head length; and (2) ratio shank length/HL. Also, Anolis carlliebi differs from A. quercorum and the species described below (our Species C of the A. quercorum complex) in hemipenis morphology (hemipenis unilobed in A. carlliebi vs. slightly to distinctly bilobed in the other two species) and by substantial genetic distances.|
|Comment||Synonymy: after KÖHLER et al. 2014|
|Etymology||The name carlliebi is a patronym honoring Carl S. Lieb who has contributed substantially to our knowledge of Mexican anoles.|
