Reproductionviviparous 
TypesSyntypes: MNHN 1652-1654, collected by Alfredo Dugès

Syntypes: Two, Mus. Alfredo Dugès, no number, collector unknown (Smith and Necker, 1944) [intermedius]

Holotype: BMNH 1946.8.10.51, formerly 1890.2.4.5, collected by F. D. Godman and O. Salvin [pleurolepis] 
CommentMARTINEZ-MENDEZ & MENDEZ-DE LA CRUZ 2007 suggested not to recognize the subspecies of S. dugesii as they are hardly differentiated. 
EtymologyThis 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).
