TypesHolotype: MLP R 5289, adult male, collected by J.A. Scolaro and O.F. Tappari, 24 March 2006. 
CommentDiagnosis: Phymaturus ceii shows a noticeable sexual dichromatism. Males show a dorsal pattern of dark brown brick-like background, sometimes with light green shades intensely mottled with little white-grey spots. Females show a dorsal pattern of light brown background mottled with little grey spots and three strips, one vertebral and one on each side. These strips are conformed by dark brown scales of an intense variegated with numerous light brown spots separated by two strips of light brown scales. The coloration is dark brown, flecked with ocellus of irregular spots of a creamy colour, in different proportions on the limbs and an attenuated prominence of spiny scales on its caudal verticilles. It presents the Meckel’s groove fused, undivided subocular scale, thin and imbricate superciliaries scales and smooth dorsal scales on the tail. It shows two rows of lorilabials scales between the subocular and the supralabials.

This species belongs to the patagonicus group (fide LOBO et al. 2010). 
EtymologyThe species is dedicated to honour José Miguel Cei (1918-2007), Argentinian herpetologist, who reviewed the manuscript of SCOLARO & IBARGÜENGOYTÍA but died before its publication.
