Type locality: Mucoso bei Dondo, Angola.  
TypesHolotype: ZSM 117/1953/1, adult male 
DiagnosisDiagnosis (original): Eine Rasse von Agama agama, die sich durch eine etwas erhohte Zahl der Schuppen um die Rumpfmitte (63 — 78) und durch Farbungsmerkmale, vor allem durch den Besitz eines rostbraunen welligen Lateralbandes bei den erwachsenen Weibchen auszeichnet. 
CommentSubspecies: The rank of the two subspecies boensis and mucosoensis is questionable (WAGNER et al. 2009). However, WAGNER et al. 2012 elevated mucosoensis to full species status.
