|Comment||Diagnosis. Enyalioides sophiarothschildae can be distinguished from other species of Enyalioides, except for E. laticeps, by having caudal scales that are relatively homogeneous in size on each caudal segment; in all other species of Enyalioides, the dorsal and lateral caudals increase in size posteriorly on each caudal segment, and the largest (posteriormost) caudals on each segment are mucronate or have some kind of projection (Torres-Carvajal et al. 2011). Enyalioides sophiarothschildae differs from E. laticeps (character states in parentheses) in color patterns: gular region in males white with a black medial patch scattered with turquoise scales (orange or dirty cream with longitudinal brown, reddish-brown, bluish, or orange streaks, and a large brown or black medial blotch at the level of the gular fold); chest in males grayish white with a turquoise tone (usually an orange tone); labials and chin immaculate white (cream or green in many tones, but never immaculate white).|
|Etymology||The specific epithet is a noun in the genitive case and is a patronym honoring Sophia Rothschild in recognition of her financial support for the improve- ment of the herpetological collection of CORBIDI through the BIOPAT Program.|
