Tail with midventral scales distinctly wider than long, forming a repetitive sequence of two single midventrals (one after the other), each in contact laterodistally with one scale per side, followed by a divided (only on proximal portion of tail, when present) or single midventral in contact laterodistally with two scales per side (respectively 1’1’2” and 1’1’1”). A white suprahumeral bar, bordered by black, both in males and females (but thinner in the latter); from very short (hardly higher than long) to almost reaching the middorsal region. Males with a vermiculated pattern of light and dark (in life respectively drab or orange-yellow, and reddish-brown) spots on head and body dorsally; gular region light with dark oblique streaks or redddish with white oblique streaks (orange with orange-yellow streaks in life).|
