CommentThe only character that seems to devide ocellata and bassleri is an undivided (ocellata) or divided (bassleri) loreal scale, although other distinguishing (but more variable) characters exist.

Distribution: TORRES-CARVAJAL et al. 2015 almost exclusively used samples from Ecuador for their phylogenetic analysis while Cercosaura ocellata and its subspecies occur over a larger area in South America (mostly Brazil).
