CommentSynonymy: partly after SCHWARTZ & HENDERSON 1988. Norops sagrei sagrei and Norops sagrei ordinatus were originally introduced to southern Florida, but they can no longer be distinguished (CONANT & COLLINS 1991). Poe et al. 2017 consider ordinatus and greyi synonyms of sagrei.

Ecology: Schoener et al. (2001) studied how A. sagrei recovered on 88% of the 66 Bahamas islands that were hit by hurricane Floyd in 1999. Later, Schoener et al. (2005) showed that survival of N. sagrei correlated with vegetation height: the island with the shortest vegetation had nearly the highest survival recorded for any lizard. However, when Leiocephalus carinatus, a predator of N. sagrei (which forages mostly on the ground), was introduced, N. sagrei shifted to taller vegetation.

Evolution: On small islands in Florida, Stuart et al. 2014 found that the lizard Anolis carolinensis moved to higher perches following invasion by Anolis sagrei and, in response, adaptively evolved larger toepads after only 20 generations.

Variation: A. sagrei is a widespread and variable species. Among other varieties, red- and orange-headed varieties have been described (see, e.g. various Anole Annals posts for photos).

Subspecies: Norops sagrei sagrei and Norops sagrei ordinatus were originally introduced to southern Florida, but they can no longer be distinguished (CONANT & COLLINS 1991). Anolis sagrei nelsoni, and A. s. luteosignifer, and ordinatus are treated here as full species.

Distribution: Has been erroneously recorded from “Porto Rico” (= Puerto Rico). Reports from Venezuela are doubtful (DONOSO-BARROS 1968). May have been introduced to Jamaica.

Species group: Norops sagrei species group (fide NICHOLSON et al. 2012).

Karyotype: 2n=28, XY (males) or XX (females) (Giovannotti et al. 2016)
