TypesSyntypes: BMNH (RB 1946.8.12.38), (RR 1946.8.5.58), MSNG 28447 
DiagnosisDiagnosis in ETHERIDGE & WILLIAMS 1991: 332.
CommentSynonymy following that of ETHERIDGE & WILLIAMS 1991 and CEI 1993 with additions from BOULENGER 1885. BOULENGER 1886 synonymized Laemanctus obtusirostris with A. undulatus (which is listed in this database also as a valid species). ETHERIDGE & WILLIAMS 1991 suggested to suppress Laemanctus obtusirostris WIEGMANN 1834 and Laemanctus Fitzingeri WIEGMANN 1834 as these names have hardly been used in the 20th century.
