|Distribution||Colombia (Meta: Eastern slopes of the Oriental Cordillera)|
Type locality: “Portachuelo, about 2 miles (by air) north of Manzanares, a police inspection station in the Municipio de Acacías, Meta, Colombia”
|Types||Holotype: ICN-MHN = ICN 6762|
|Diagnosis||Diagnosis. Close to Anolis solitarius, tigrinus, menta, and ruizi, apparently differing from all in details of coloration. It differs from tigrinus in the absence of minute tubercles on the head scales, from menta in that the dewlap is uniform yellow-orange rather than bicolor white and lemon-yellow, from ruizi in the possession of a small knob at the posterior edge of the parietal, and from solitarius in body pattern and in the presence of a line of enlarged scales continuing back onto the parietal knob. The pattern of the only known specimen, a male, is closest to that of male ruizi, but lacks the distinctly reticulate flanks of that species (Williams 1992: 4).|
|Comment||Species groups: Dactyloa punctata species group (fide NICHOLSON et al. 2012).|
Abundance: only known from the type specimen (Meiri et al. 2017).
|Etymology||Named after its discoverer, W.W. Lamar.|
