Reproduction 
TypesLectotype: Specimen 0 in Boulenger (1897), collected by Hoege, from a series of syntypes, BMNH 1946.8.29.96-97, 1946.8.29.98-99, 1946.8.30.1, formerly 1881.10.31.8-9 (Smith, 1939). 
CommentSynonymy: Sceloporus malachiticus internasalis SMITH & BUMZAHEM 1955 has been considered as a synonym of S. salvini but is now treated as a valid species.

Distribution: not in Guatemala as stated in the original type locality (”Jalapa and Guatemala”); Guatemalan specimens are not assigned to S. internasalis. 
EtymologyThe Latin genitive singular honors Osbert Salvin, a prodigiously productive British naturalist and co-editor of the Biologia Centrali-Americana, who collected extensively in Guatemala and elswhere.
