lineatopus: roughly the southern third of Jamaica, from St. Elizabeth Parish east to St. Thomas Parish. Populations intermediate between 2, 3, or 4 of the subspecies that occur in eastern Jamaica, west and southwest of Buff Bay. Elsewhere, subspecies appear to interdigitate extensively or overlap; the relationships between the subspecies need to be clarified. Type locality: unknown.

ahenobarbus: extreme eastern Jamaica.

merope: the northern marginal region of Jamaica; Cabarita I. off Port Maria.

neckeri: along east-west axis of Jamaica, from Hanover and Westmoreland parishes east into St. Catherine Parish; delineation of the ranges of the subspecies is tentative.  
TypesHolotype: BMNH 1936.12.3.92 = 1946.8.12.61
