Agama wachirae • A New Species of the Agama lionotus Boulenger, 1896 Complex (Squamata: Agamidae) from northern Kenya

This new species is characterized by its small size (mean SVL ~83 mm) as compared to typical A. lionotus (mean SVL ~120 mm). Past studies have shown the value of adult male throat coloration for the identification of species within the A. lionotus complex. Herein we also highlight female dorsal color pattern, which is a key character for distinguishing the new species from others in the group, including the similar Ahulbertorum Leer más.
