|Etymology||The name immaculogularis is a compound adjective derived from immaculosus (Latin for not spotted) and gula (Latin for throat) referring to male dewlap that lacks pale spots around the gorgetals, a diagnostic character to distinguish Anolis immaculogularis from its supposed closest relative, A. boulengerianus.|
