Diagnosis. A large species (maximum SVL 81 mm) of the genus Dactyloa (sensu Nicholson et al. 2012) that is most similar in external morphology to the other members of this clade found in western Panama (D. casildae, D. frenata, D. ginaelisae, D. insignis, D. kunayalae, and D. microtus). Dactyloa ibanezi can immediately be distinguished from these six species by its unique coloration consisting of immaculate green dorsal and lateral surfaces with several parallel, narrow, diagonal dark stripes on the flanks and bright yellow surrounding the eye (Fig. 13). In addition, D. ibanezi differs from D. ginaelisae, D. insignis, D. kunayalae, and D. microtus in having long legs (tip of fourth toe of adpressed hind limb reaching to eye or beyond D. ibanezi), and from D. casildae, D. frenata, and D. insignis by having fewer subdigital lamellae under the fourth toe (41 or fewer in D. ibanezi vs. 42 or more) as well as under the fourth finger (28 or fewer in D. ibanezi vs. 29 or more) [LOTZKAT et al. 2013].
Species group: Dactyloa latifrons species group (NICHOLSON et al. 2012).
|Etymology||Named after Roberto Ibañez of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute for his contributions to Panamanian herpetology.|
