CommentFrost (1992) proposed the name Tropidurus strobilurus for Strobilurus torquatus WIEGMANN 1834, since the combination Tropidurus torquatus is already preoccupied. Frost (2001) resurrected Strobilurus again.

Type species: Strobilurus torquatus WIEGMANN 1834 is the type species of the genus Strobilurus WIEGMANN 1834. See Frost 2001 for a new diagnosis of the genus.

Habitat: closed-canopy forest, arboreal

Young specimens have a greenish color and the adults are grayed out and the tail with thorns.

Synonymy partly after Peters et al. 1970.
