|Etymology||This name honors the collector, Alfredo Dugès, who often is called "the father of Mexican herpetology", and who was the first one to summarize the Mexican herpetofauna in Linnaean terms.|
Etymology (intermedius): The Latin intermedius, "intermediate", was applied with the thought that its scalation was intermediate between that of S. grammicus and S. microlepidotus.
Etymology (pleurolepis): The Greek pleura, "side," and lepis, "scale," refer to the lateral scales, which "are twice or thrice as large as those on the back, and keeled" (Günther, 1890: 74).
