EtymologyThe specific epithet extrilidus is a Latin adjective for unterrified or dauntless, which is in reference to the approachability of this new species in nature. The boldness of these lizards is in contrast to the authors’ experience with most other species of Phymaturus, which tend to seek refuge in rock crevices at the slightest disturbance—even when approached slowly from a distance.
