CommentConservation. We do not have evidence that the species is threatened or declining within its range. However, given the small range size and the fact that it occurs in a populated area suggests that it may be threated by encroaching urban areas. For this reason, KÖHLER & HEDGES 2016 consider the conservation status of Anolis cyanostictus to be Near Threatened based on the IUCN Red List Categories and Criteria (IUCN, 2012).
