Specimens: BOCOURT 1873 described Anolis rubiginosus based on a single adult female. Later, Smith (1968) described A. polyrhachis on the basis of an adult female. Nieto-Montes de Oca (1994) examined the type of A. rubiginosus and 47 specimens referable to A. polyrhachis from the region of its type locality in the Sierra de Juárez and the adjacent Sierra Mixe, Oaxaca, and observed that all of the characters exhibited by the type of A. rubiginosus were also present in his sample of A. polyrhachis.
