CommentUpton, D. E. & R. W. Murphy. 1997. Mol. Phylog. Evol. 8(1):104-113. Sugieren que las tres especies de arriba sean tratadas como subespecies de Uta stansburiana. Este es rechazado por Grismer, L. L. 1999. Herpetologica 55(4):446-469. Aquí se sigue lo propuesto por Grismer, ya que Upton & Murphy no utilizaron tejidos de las especies descritas por Grismer en su análisis [cited from FLORES-VILLELA & CANSECO-MÁRQUEZ 2004].
