CommentSynonymy: BÖHME et al. 2011 consider Trachylepis keroanensis as a valid species but note that the two syntypes (MNHN 1921.0323–0324) are strikingly different from T. perroteti (see Stoll 2008) and seem to belong to the elongate, short-legged T. buettneri Matschie, 1910/T. sudanensis Schmidt, 1919 complex sensu Hoogmoed 194, which is under review by WB and coworkers).
