FAMILY CORYTOPHANIDAE Fitzinger 1843 , 16

(3 genera, 8 species, 1 endemic species)

Basiliscus Laurenti 1768 , 50 (2 species)

Basiliscus plumifrons Cope 1875 , 125

Basiliscus vittatus Wiegmann 1828 , col. 373

Corytophanes H. Boie 1827 , col. 290 in Schlegel 1827 (3 species) Corytophanes cristatus (Merrem 1820, 50)

Corytophanes hernandesii (Wiegmann 1831, col. 298) Corytophanes percarinatus A.H.A. Duméril 1856 , 518

Laemanctus Wiegmann 1834 , 16 (3 species, 1 endemic species)

Laemanctus longipes Wiegmann 1834 , 46

Laemanctus serratus Cope 1865 , 176

Laemanctus waltersi (E) K. Schmidt 1933, 20. There are two distinct morphological populations of the L. longipes complex in Honduras that occur in definable separate ranges without showing any deviation form their diagnostic external morphology. Therefore, L. waltersi is considered a separate species from L. longipes . This matter will be discussed in more detail in McCranie (in prep.; the non-dactyloid lizards, crocodyles, and turtles of Honduras) and a study of the entire L. longipes complex is planned for the future. Unfortunately, tissues are only available from one of those populations ( L. waltersi ).
