|Comment||Diagnosis (artytor): A small chameleon, which differs from the nominate form on Mt. Hanang in the following characters: less convex scalation on body and head, smooth head crests, parietal crest distinctly bi-forked anteriorly, the ridge of the parietal crest contains only one scale row, a higher ratio of HL to HW and HL to HBL (relatively longer and narrower heads), smaller total length [153.0–199.0 mm in males (204.6–227.0 mm in K. u. uthmoelleri) and 151.0–173.7 mm in females (161.4–181.4 mm in K. u. uthmoelleri)] and no sexual dimorphism in the relative tail length.|
|Etymology||“The subspecies name “artytor” is the latinised substantive of the Greek verb “αρτυειν“ (artyein), which can be translated as “to prepare / to make ready requiring skills”. We name this new subspecies in honour and tribute to Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Böhme and his skills to prepare dozens of students on their way to scientific careers, which was also the case for four of the authors of this publication” (from LUTZMANN et al. 2010).|
