DistributionHispaniola (Haiti): Île de la Gonâve.

Type locality: Île de la Gonâve  
TypesHolotype: MCZ 13739 
DiagnosisDiagnosis. A species of the genus Audantia that differs from all congeners by the combination of having (1) smooth ventral scales; (2) male dewlap creme white with central orange blotch (Fig. 21b), and with heterogeneously distributed, intermediate spaced gorgetal scales, that are cluttered in groups, and reduced in size in central portion; (3) no dark gular streaks in males; (4) no patch of enlarged scales in nuchal region; (5) a double row of greatly enlarged (at least three times the size of adjacent scales), keeled and mucronate vertebral scales; (6) usually two sublabial scales in contact with infralabials; (7) 166–184 scales around midbody in males; and (8) keeled scales on dorsal surfaces of upper forelimb and anterior surface of thigh.

Audantia doris differs from A. breslini, A. cybotes, A. shrevei, and A. saxatilis by having smooth ventrals (vs. keeled, some individuals of A. breslini and A. cybotes with smooth ventrals); by having an orange blotch in the center on the male dewlap (vs. absent); and by having heterogeneously distributed gorgetals with groups of cluttered scales (vs. homogeneously distributed gorgetals). Audantia doris differs further from A. shrevei by lacking a patch of greatly enlarged scales in nuchal region (vs. such a patch present). Audantia doris differs from A. armouri by having a double row of greatly enlarged, at least three times the size of adjacent scales, keeled and mucronate vertebral scales (vs. those scales only weakly enlarged, usually less than twice the size of adjacent scales, non-mucronate); by having 166–184 scales around midbody in males (vs. 118–172); by having an orange blotch arranged in the center on the male dewlap (vs. absent); and by having heterogeneously distributed gorgetals with groups of cluttered scales (vs. homogeneously distributed gorgetals). Audantia doris differs from A. cybotes by having no dark gular streaks (present); by having the gorgetal scales reduced in size in central portion of posterior half of male dewlap (vs. all gorgetals large on posterior half of dewlap); and by having heterogeneously distributed gorgetals with groups of cluttered scales (vs. homogeneously distributed gorgetals). Audantia doris differs from A. marcanoi and A. strahmi by having a creme white male dewlap with an orange blotch arranged in the center (vs. rose-red at the edge, more orangish anteriorly and posteriorly, but purplish or even bluish toward the center in A. marcanoi, and orange with paler center in A. strahmi). Audantia doris differs from A. longitibialis by having a creme white dewlap with a central orange blotch (vs. yellow without central orange blotch); and by having mucronate middorsals (vs. non-mucronate middorsals). Audantia doris differs from A. ravifaux by having keeled scales on dorsal surface of upper forelimb and anterior surface of thigh (vs. smooth); by having a double row of greatly enlarged, at least three times the size of adjacent scales, keeled and mucronate vertebral scales (vs. those scales only weakly enlarged, usually less than twice the size of adjacent scales, smooth and non-mucronate); and by having a male dewlap with an orange blotch arranged in the center (vs. absent). For differences between A. doris and the species described below, see the respective accounts of the new species (from Köhler et la. 2019: 39).
