Conservation. Given its small geographic range and continuing threat from deforestation, KÖHLER & HEDGES 2016 consider the conservation status of Anolis divius to be Endangered based on criterion B1ab (iii) of the IUCN Red List Categories and Criteria (IUCN, 2012).

Abundance: only known from its original description (Meiri et al. 2017). 
EtymologyThe name divius is the neuter singular nominative comparative of divus (Latin for “divine”, “heavenly”, and refers to the “sky god”), in allusion to the blue coloration of this species.
