DistributionMauritania, Senegal, Gambia, Guinea-Bissau, Guinea (Conakry), Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Togo, Benin, Burkina Faso, Niger, Nigeria, Cameroon, Central African Republic, N N Democratic Republic of the Congo (Zaire), Uganda, Mali, Chad, Sudan

breviparietalis: Sénégal ?; Type locality: “Sénégal: Koldé”  
Reproductionoviparous 
TypesHolotype: MNHN-RA 2928 (2771), Senegal, collected Perrotet. Previous version of the BMNH online catalogue also gave BMNH 1946.8.4.97.
Holotype: NMW [mongallensis]
Holotype: MNHN 1917.13 [breviparietalis]
Holotype: ZMB 404 [Euprepes pleurostictus]
Holotype: IRSNB type 2.260, Munoi, Upemba National Park, Zaire, collected G.F. de Witte, 11-15.vi.1948 [upembae] 
DiagnosisDiagnosis: HOOGMOED 1974: 34. 
CommentSynonymy partly after HOOGMOED 194. M. breviparietalis is a synonym of Trachylepis perroteti, fide J.F. Trape (pers. comm., 29. Sep 2014). Trape et al. 2012 believe that Mabuia guineensis MONARD 1940 are actually juvenile Trachylepis perroteti.

Distribution: Chad, Sudan after L. Chirio (and MNHN, 5 April 2012).

Distribution (breviparietalis): There is no “Koldé, Senegal” in Google Maps, but there is a town called Kolda.

Habitat: terrestrial
