Diagnosis. A large species (SVL in largest male 95.0 mm, largest female 96.0 mm) of the genus Anolis (sensu Poe 2004) that differs from all Mexican and Central American anoles by having a combination of (1) smooth to weakly keeled ventral scales; (2) 2–8 moderately to greatly enlarged supraoculars, arranged in 2–3 rows; (3) 2–6 rows of slightly to moderately enlarged dorsal scales that are smaller than ventral scales; (4) short hind legs, longest toe of adpressed hind leg usually reaching usually to level of ear opening, occasionally to posterior margin of eye, ratio shank length/SVL 0.22–0.25; (5) prenasal divided; and (6) a large orange dewlap in males and a moderate-sized brownish-orange dewlap in females (KÖHLER et al. 2014: 181).
