|Distribution||C Panama (Darién)|
Type locality: Mt. Sapo, Darién, Panama, 2,500 feet elevation
|Types||Holotype: MCZ 16297, juvenile female, collected by Thomas Barbour and Winthrop Brooks, in April, 1922.|
|Diagnosis||Diagnosis: Anolis insignis, A. brooksi, and the two species described below are the only Central American Anolis to combine large size (> 120.0 mm SVL), smooth scales on the upper thigh, and short limbs (Savage and Talbot 1978). Ano- lis brooksi is diagnosed from the three other insignis- like anole species discussed here by its peach-tan male dewlap (Fig. 2; orange-red in A. insignis; white, pale pink with dark streaks, respectively by species, in the other two forms). It further differs from the Southwest- ern Costa Rican form in its lack of a postorbital blotch (present in the Southwestern Costa Rican form) and its female dewlap color pattern (white or brown with dark streaks; pale pink with dark streaks in the Southwestern Costa Rica form); from the Fortuna form in its prominent postcloacal scales in males (obscure in the Fortuna form) and its female dewlap color pattern (white or brown with dark streaks; patternless white in the Fortuna form); from A. insignis in some scale counts (Table 1; e.g., fewer postrostrals) and details of color pattern (Savage and Tal- bot 1978; e.g., presences of narrow black lines dorsally).|
|Comment||Synonymy: removed from the synonymy of A. insignis by POE & RYAN 2017.|
|Etymology||Named after the collector of the type, and a friend and companion of Thomas Barbour, Winthrop Sprague Brooks.|
