EtymologyNamed after the Latin adjective barbatulum meaning ‘small bearded’– referring to the diminutive gular lobes. Although the gular region of species is not actually ‘beardless’, we propose to retain the common name of Beardless Dwarf Chameleon, which has been in casual use for several decades and this common name has been established in the literature (Tolley and Burger 2007).
