The single specimen of Barisia jonesi analyzed by Bryson et al. 2011 nests within B. imbricata, so that it is likely a synonym of B. imbricata. See Bryson et al. 2011 for a discussion (these authors do not make explicit taxonomic recommendations though).
|Etymology||Named “in honor of Dr. Richard E. Jones, a comparative reproductive biologist in whose laboratory our study has been carried out and who has been largely responsible for the successful establishment of a highly productive center of modern herpetological study at the University of Colorado”.|
