Comparisons (traits of taxa compared to Anolis pseudotigrinus in parentheses): Anolis pseudotigrinus can be distinguished from A. fuscoauratus, A. ortonii, and A. punctatus by a lichenous dorsal body coloration with green background (A. fuscoauratus: brown or gray; A. ortonii: marmorated with brown, gray and black; A. punctatus: green, often with white spots), 106–118 scales around mid-body (A. fuscoauratus: 124–157; A. ortonii: 123–180; A. punctatus: 132–167), smooth dorsals (weakly keeled), and smooth snout scales between nostrils (keeled). Anolis pseudotigrinus further differs from A. fuscoauratus and A. punctatus by supraorbital semicircles in contact (separated by granular scales) and well-developed dewlap in females (vestigial). Anolis pseudotigrinus differs from A. nasofrontalis by about 12–14 rows of gorgetal- sternal dewlap scales (five to seven), 87–98 dorsals (78–89) and 79–90 ventrals (66–73) between axilla and groin, 106–118 scales around mid-body (95–104), and large white dewlap in females (small orange dewlap). Anolis pseudotigrinus can be further distinguished from A. fuscoauratus, A. nasofrontalis, and A. ortonii by a pointed snout (blunt). (Prates et al. 2017).
