Type locality: Caracas, Venezuela; may be in error (see comment) Map legend:
TDWG region - Region according to the TDWG standard, not a precise distribution map.

TypesHolotype: BMNH 1946.8.13.35, formerly 1846.10.28.5 
CommentStatus: The validity of this taxon is highly dubious [RIVAS et al. 2012]. BOULENGER 1885 listed A. gibbiceps as synonym of A. schiedii.

Distribution: C. McCarthy (BMNH), cited in RIVAS et al. 2012, stated that the holotype is not from Venezuela but from Jamaica.

Species group: Norops auratus Species Group (fide Nicholson et al. 2012)
