CommentGenerally resembles Stenocercus tricristatus, but has been resurrected from synonymy with that species by Avila-Pires 1995

Similar species: Stenocercus dumerilii, S. tricristatus, S.quinarius, and S. squarrosus share combined morphological features (three or five dorsal crests, enlarged post-supraciliary scale, head blunt, pyramidal, bordered by supraciliary crests) unseen in the remainder of the genus (see Avila-Pires 1995, Nogueira & Rodrigues 2006).
