|Reproduction||Parthenogenetic species. See also C. lemniscatus. ‘‘Cnemidophorus’’ cryptus is a diploid clonal parthenogen of hybrid origin (Dessauer and Cole, 1989; Sites et al., 1990). Two clones probably originated from separate F1 hybrid zygotes (Cole and Dessauer, 1993), although it is not known whether these were produced by the same individual parents or in the same clutch of eggs. The current working hypothesis is that ‘‘C.’’ gramivagus and ‘‘C.’’ lemniscatus are the two ancestral species (Cole and Dessauer, 1993).|
|Types||Holotype: AMNH R135089, female|
|Comment||Group: member of the lemniscatus group, see C. lemniscatus for details.|
Distribution: See map in Morato et al. 2014: 56
