|Comment||This species is probably not a Proctoporus because it has prefrontals (DOAN & SCHARGEL 2003 and SCHARGEL, pers. comm.). Instead, it could belong to either Euspondylus or Pholidobolus. The single specimen of P. cephalolineatus could be an aberrant specimen of the geographically close P. inanis, a species from the Andes of Mérida recently described and now in the genus Riama (Doan & Schargel 2003; Doan & Castoe 2005), in which case the name P. cephalolineatus would have priority.|
