Type species: Gerrhonotus imbricatus WIEGMANN 1828 is the type species of the genus Barisia GRAY 1838.

Definition (genus Barisia): Gerrhonotine lizards with the skull not widened or depressed ; frontal bone not in contact with the maxillae ; pterygoid teeth absent or vestigial; dorsal osteoderms with a well-defined, strongly thickened basal area; lateral fold moderately to well developed, with a moderate or large granular area ; sides of the neck finely granular; postero-ventral surfaces of the forearms and shanks granular; minimum number of scales in a single row across the nape six to ten; anterior internasals present; postrostral present or absent; subocular and postocular series well differentiated from each other; the suboculars extend to the lowest primary temporal; twelve to fourteen ventral scale rows (fide TIHEN 1949). 
EtymologyThe generic name was derived from the Greek word barys, meaning "heavy," apparently in reference to the robust body of B. imbricata (Lemos-Espinal & Dixon 2013).
