Conservation. Given its small geographic range, highly fragmented habitats, and severe threat from deforestation, KÖHLER & HEDGES 2016 consider the conservation status of Anolis gonavensis as Critically Endangered based on criterion B1ab(iii) of the IUCN Red List Categories and Criteria (IUCN 2012).
EtymologyThe name gonavensis is derived from Île de la Gonâve, Haiti, where the type specimens of the species were collected and where it is probably restricted, and the Latin suffix– ensis (denoting place or locality).
