DiagnosisDiagnosis. A medium-sized species (snout–vent length [SVL] in largest specimen 54.0 mm) of the genus Anolis (sensu Poe, 2004) that is most similar in external morphology to a cluster of Central American species that are short-legged (longest toe of adpressed hindlimb reaches only to tympanum), have a single elongated prenasal scale, smooth to slightly keeled ventral scales, and slender habitus, often delicate (i.e., Anolis altae, A. carpenteri, A. exsul, A. fortunensis, A. fuscoauratus, A. gruuo, and A. kemptoni). Anolis pseudokemptoni differs from the species in this cluster by the following characteristics (condition for A. pseudokemptoni in parentheses): Anolis altae: male dewlap uniform dull orange (male dewlap tricolored: posterior portion vinaceous, anterior portion orange, anterodorsal corner chamois); no dewlap in females (a small orange dewlap in females). Anolis carpenteri: male dewlap orange (male dewlap tricolored: posterior portion vinaceous, anterior portion orange, anterodorsal corner chamois); no dewlap in females (a small orange dewlap in females). Anolis gruuo: ratio HL/HW 1.63–1.67 (1.83– 1.85); male dewlap orange (male dewlap tricolored: posterior portion vinaceous, anterior portion orange, anterodorsal corner chamois); tail contrastingly dark and pale banded (no contrasting banding). Anolis exsul: hemipenis unilobate (bilobate); male dewlap orange at base with cherry red margin (male dewlap tricolored: posterior portion vinaceous, anterior portion orange, anterodorsal corner chamois); a small white dewlap in females (a small orange dewlap in females); no enlarged postanal scales in males (distinctly enlarged). Anolis fortunensis: male dewlap yellowish orange at base with orange red margin (male dewlap tricolored: posterior portion vinaceous, anterior portion orange, anterodorsal corner chamois); hemipenis unilobate (bilobate). Anolis fuscoauratus: male dewlap pinkish-brown to red (male dewlap tricolored: posterior portion vinaceous, anterior portion orange, anterodorsal corner chamois); no dewlap in females (a small orange dewlap in females); no enlarged postanal scales in males (distinctly enlarged). Anolis kemptoni: hemipenis unilobate (bilobate; Figs. 5 and 6); dewlap in females white (orange). Within this cluster of species, A. pseudokemptoni is most similar to A. kemptoni from which it further differs in the total number of loreal scales (kemptoni: 33–61; pseudokemptoni: 75–88) and in having smooth ventral scales (slightly keeled in A. kemptoni). 
CommentSpecies group: Norops auratus Species Group (fide Nicholson et al. 2012) 
Etymologynamed after its close relationship to A. kemptoni.
