|Types||Holotype: BMNH 1918.104.22.168 (formerly BMNH 1922.214.171.124)|
|Diagnosis||Differential diagnosis: Uromastyx macfadyeniis distinguished from U. thomasi and U. princepsby the significantly longer tail. From all remaining species of the genus (with the exception of the U. ocellata group) by the arrangement of the annuli of the tail: last 8–21 forming a continuous scale row each (U. ocellata group and U. macfadyeni) vs. 2–5 whorls forming a continuous scale row (all other Uromastyx species). From U. benti, U. shobraki and U. yemenensis the species differs in possessing preanofemoral pores and from U. ocellatain having enlarged scales on the anterior margin of the ear opening. From U. ornatait is distinguished by a different ratio between tail width at the 5th tail whorl and between 4th and 5th whorl (tail width between the 4th and 5th whorl equivalent to 63–79 % of maximum tail width at the 5th whorl in U. ornata vs. tail width between the 4thand 5thwhorl equivalent to 56–62 % of maximum tail width at 5th whorl in U. macfadyeni).|
