DistributionUSA (E Oregon, S Idaho, Nevada, E Utah, SW California, W Arizona), Mexico (Baja California Norte, NW Sonora)

Type locality: Great Salt Lake, Utah. Map legend:
TDWG region - Region according to the TDWG standard, not a precise distribution map.

NOTE: TDWG regions are generated automatically from the text in the distribution field and not in every cases it works well. We are working on it.
 
Reproductionoviparous 
TypesHolotype: USNM 189 ? (fide SMITH & TAYLOR 1950) 
CommentSynonymy partly after SMITH & TAYLOR 1950.

Subspecies: The subspecies of P. platyrhinos are questioned by Pianka (1991). MULCAHY et al. 2006 elevated Phrynosoma platyrhinos goodei to full species status based on mtDNA sequences. MULCAHY et al. 2006 also presented evidence for goodei x mcalli hybrids.

Group: Belongs to the Doliosaurus clade fide LEACHE & MCGUIRE 2006.
