CommentDiagnosis. Proablepharus naranjicaudus sp. nov. can be distinguished from all other species in the genus by the following combination of characters: supraoculars four, first two contacting frontal; frontoparietals and interparietal fused into a single scale; supraciliaries usually six; upper preocular small or absent; postsupralabials usually one, and subdigital lamellae of pes tri-mucronate. 
EtymologyThe species name naranjicaudus is from the Arabic for "orange" and the Latin for "tail".
