Diagnosis. A small species (SVL in largest male 47.0 mm, largest female 48.0 mm) of the genus Anolis (sensu Poe 2004) that differs from all other Mexican and Central American congeners except A. dunni, A. gadovii, A. liogaster, and A. peucephilus by having (1) smooth ventral scales; (2) an oval patch of usually three greatly enlarged supraorbital scales; (3) a pair of greatly enlarged postcloacal scales in males. Anolis omiltemanus differs from A. dunni and A. gadovii by having 10–15 rows of dorsal scales moderately enlarged (vs. the middorsal scales not or only 2–4 rows slightly enlarged in A. dunni and A. gadovii). It further differs from A. dunni by having a uniform orange yellow male dewlap (vs. pinkish to orange red male dewlap with semicircular pale streaks and blotches in A. dunni). It also differs from A. gadovii by the absence of a bold reticulated body pattern (vs. such a pattern present in A. gadovii). Anolis omiltemanus differs from A. liogaster by having shorter hind legs with the longest toe of adpressed hind leg reaching to level of ear opening or to a point between shoulder and ear opening, ratio ShL/ SVL 0.18–0.23 (vs. usually to a point between posterior and anterior margin of eye or occasionally to a point between ear opening and eye in A. liogaster; ratio ShL/SVL 0.24–0.30), usually two pairs of greatly enlarged sublabial scales in contact with infralabial scales (vs. usually a single pair in A. liogaster), and an orange yellow male dewlap (vs. pink to purple in A. liogaster), as well as in the number of loreal scale rows (usually four, occasionally five, exceptionally three, in A. omiltemanus vs. commonly four or five, occasionally six, in A. liogaster) and in the number of scales between interparietal and supraorbital semicircles (usually one, commonly two, exceptionally zero, in A. omiltemanus vs. usually two, commonly one, occasionally three, in A. liogaster). Females of A. omiltemanus have a very small dirty white dewlap, whereas those of A. liogaster have a very small to small pink dewlap. In external morphology, A. omiltemanus is most similar to A. peucephilus from which it differs by having slightly longer hind legs with the longest toe of adpressed hind leg reaching usually to ear opening, occasionally to slightly beyond ear opening or to a point between shoulder and ear opening (vs. to a point between levels of axilla and ear opening in A. peucephilus), a slightly smaller dewlap in females, in largest female about 41 mm2 (vs. to 64 mm2 in A. peucephilus), the circumnasal separated from the first supralabial by the presence of a subnasal (the circumnasal usually in contact with the first supralabial in A. peucephilus), and 6–7 internasal scales (vs. 4–6 in A. peucephilus). Furthermore, A. omiltemanus differs from A. peucephilus in hemipenial morphology (a finger-like processus on asulcate side in A. omiltemanus vs. no such processus in A. peucephilus) (KÖHLER et al. 2014).
