Diagnosis. Plestiodon lotus can be distinguished from the other members of the P. brevirostris group as follows: from P. bilineatus and P. dicei , by the presence of a primary temporal (versus primary temporal absent in 89.4% [n = 52] of P. bilineatus and 98% [n = 52] of P. dicei ); additionally from P. bilineatus by having a tendency towards more Toe-IV lamellae (13–15 [X=̄13.81, n = 27], versus 11–13 [X=̄11.7, n = 54] in P. bilineatus ); and from P. dicei by having the interparietal enclosed posteriorly by the parietals (versus interparietal not enclosed posteriorly by the parietals in 94.2% [n = 52] of specimens in P. dicei ).

Plestiodon lotus differs from P. brevirostris , P. copei , P. nietoi , P. ochoterenae , and P. parviauriculatus by having the primary lateral dark lines separated medially by the six median dorsal scale rows and upper half of the adjacent row on each side at the level of midbody (versus primary lateral dark lines separated medially by the median six dorsal scale rows or less invariably in the other species, except for 9.01% of the specimens [n = 122] of P. brevirostris ); additionally from P. brevirostris , P. copei , P. ochoterenae , and P. parviauriculatus by having the interparietal enclosed posteriorly by the parietals (versus interparietal not enclosed posteriorly by the parietals in 82.64% [n = 122] of P. brevirostris , 96.77% [n = 62] of P. copei , 85.71% [n = 7] of P. ochoterenae , and 97% [n = 27] of P. parviauriculatus ); and from P. brevirostris , P. copei , and P. nietoi by having a faint lower secondary dark line at the level of the neck (versus lower secondary dark line conspicuous at the level of the neck in the other species).

Plestiodon lotus differs from P. colimensis by having limbs that do not overlap when adpressed against the body (versus limbs overlapping when adpressed against the body in P. colimensis ), a tendency towards fewer longitudinal dorsal scale rows around midbody (23–26 [X= ̄24.43, n = 14], versus 26–28 [X= ̄27, n = 4] in P. colimensis ), and a tendency towards fewer Toe-IV lamellae (13–15 [X=̄13.81, n = 27], versus 13–17 [X=̄15.38, n = 8] in P. colimensis ); from P. dugesii by having four supraoculars (versus three in P. dugesii ); from P. indubitus and Plestiodon sp. Colima-Jalisco by having a solid lateral light line at level of neck (versus lateral light line replaced by a series of scales with white anterior edges and centers and black posterior borders in 90.91% [n = 33] of P. indubitus and 100% [n = 35] of Plestiodon sp. Colima-Jalisco); additionally from P. indubitus by having the light coloration of the supralabials extending to the lip border (versus light coloration separated from lip border on the sixth and seventh supralabials); from P. lynxe belli , P. l. lynxe and P. sumichrasti by having the interparietal enclosed posteriorly by the parietals (versus interparietal not enclosed posteriorly by the parietals in 100% [n = 36] of P. l. belli , 94.74% [n = 92] of P. l. lynxe , and 85.71% [n = 21] of P. sumichrasti ) and lacking a light median line in all growth stages (versus dorsum bearing a light median line that is conspicuous in juveniles and faint in large adults); and from P. parvulus by having a relatively long dorsolateral light line extending posteriorly to the anterior fourth of the body or beyond (versus dorsolateral light line extending barely posteriorly past the shoulder in P. parvulus ).

Variation (measurements in mm). Noteworthy variation in the type series (n = 14, including holotype) is described below. The holotype is included to ease comparison with other species. The diagnostic traits of Plestiodon lotus were observable in specimen CNAR 1774, but considerable damage to the specimen prevented the recording of the number of supraoculars contacting the frontal, postsuboculars, postsuboculars contacting the sixth supralabial, and the presence or absence of contact between the upper postsubocular and the upper secondary temporal. Thus, CNAR 1774 is excluded from the reported variation in those traits. Additionally, the following characters could only be recorded on the left side: number of superciliaries, scales contacting the upper secondary temporal between the upper postsubocular and the first nuchal, postlabials, and the scales contacting both the upper secondary temporal and the upper postlabial.

Frontonasal absent in one specimen (CNAR 24264); frontonasal and frontal in contact in four specimens (CNAR 24265; MZFC-HE 24159, 30623–30624); supraoculars contacting frontal 2–3, X=̄2.88 (2/2 one; 3/2 one; 3/3 eleven, including holotype); postnasals present in one specimen (MZFC-HE 30622); anterior loreal divided horizontally on left side in one specimen (MZFC-HE 30621, holotype); contact between upper presubocular and third supralabial present on both sides in eleven specimens (including holotype), on left and right side in one specimen each, absent on both sides in one; superciliaries 6–8, X=̄7 (6/7 one; 7/7 eleven, including holotype; 7/8 one; 7 on left side of CNAR 1774); postsuboculars 3–5, X=̄3.77 (3/3 two; 3/4 one [holotype]; 4/3 two; 4/4 seven; 4/5 one); postsuboculars contacting sixth supralabial 2–3, X= ̄2.42 (2/2 seven, including holotype; 3/2 one; 3/3 five); primary temporal in dorsal contact with parietal, separating upper postsubocular from upper secondary temporal, on right side in one specimen (MZFC-HE 17503); sixth supralabial divided horizontally in one specimen (MZFC-HE 30622); scales contacting upper secondary temporal between upper postsubocular and first nuchal 3–5, X= ̄ 3.78 (3/3 three; 4/3 one; 4/4 eight, including holotype; 4 on left side of CNAR 1774; 5/4 one); seventh supralabial contacting upper secondary temporal in eight specimens (CNAR 24265; MZFC-HE 19787, 30620– 30621, 30623, 30625–30627), separated from each other by an extended lower secondary temporal in six (CNAR 1774, 6585, 24264; MZFC-HE 24159, 30622, 30624); postlabials 1–3, X= ̄1.89 (1/1 one; 1/2 one; 2/1 one; 2/2 nine, including holotype; 2/3 one; 2 on left side of CNAR 1774); scales as large as, or larger than, upper postlabial contacting it 2–5, X= ̄3.89 (2/4 one; 3/4 one; 4/2 one; 4/3 one; 4/4 seven, including holotype; 4 on left side of CNAR 1774; 5/4 one; 5/5 one); scales contacting both upper secondary temporal and upper postlabial 1–3, X= ̄ 2.41 (1/2 two; 2/1 one; 2/2 two; 2/3 one; 2 on left side of CNAR 1774; 3/2 one; 3/3 six, including holotype).

Transverse dorsal scale rows between nuchals and level above vent 51–57, X= ̄ 53.07 (51 four; 52 one [holotype]; 53, four; 54, two; 55, two; 57, one); longitudinal dorsal scale rows around midbody 23–26, X=̄24.43 (23 two; 24 eight, including holotype; 26 four); Toe-IV lamellae 13–15, X= ̄ 13.81 (13/13 three, including holotype; 13/14 one, 14/14 eight;14 on right side, non-recordable on left side, in MZFC-HE 19787; 15/15 one;).

SVL 28.68–65.58, X=̄51.04; SVL / trunk length ratio 1.65–1.96, X=̄1.83; SVL / head length ratio 4.52–5.7, X=̄5.08; SVL / tibia length ratio 8.81–11.94, X=̄9.66.

This paragraph is based on specimens preserved in ethanol and some lines are likely less discernible than in life. Upper secondary dark line extending posteriorly to posterior end of neck in one specimen (CNAR 6585), to forearms in nine (CNAR 1774; MZFC-HE 17503, 19787, 30621–30626), and to posterior end of anterior fourth of body in four (CNAR 24264–24265; MZFC-HE 30620, 30627); dorsolateral light line extending posteriorly to posterior end of anterior fourth of body in four specimens (MZFC-HE 30621, 30623–30625), to midbody in one (MZFC-HE 30622), to hind limbs in one (CNAR 24265), and to anterior portion of tail in eight (CNAR 1774, 6585, 24264; MZFC-HE 17503, 19787, 30620, 30626–30627); lateral light line extending dorsally to sixth scale row at level of mid-neck in 10 specimens (CNAR 1774, 6585, 24264–24265; MZFC-HE 19787, 30621–30622, 30624–30626), and to seventh scale row in four (MZFC-HE 17503, 30620, 30623, 30627).

Remarks. The sample of Plestiodon lotus from near Arcelia, Guerrero (MZFC-HE 19787) is molecularly divergent from the other samples assigned to the species (see above). However, the specimen from Arcelia is not morphologically distinguishable from the other specimens assigned to P. lotus . Furthermore, MZFC-HE 19787 represents the farthest record (ca. 140 km WNW in straight line) from the type locality of P. lotus , which may explain its genetic divergence from other samples. We were not able to obtain molecular data for specimen CNAR 6585, which is geographically intermediate between the specimen from Arcelia and the other sequenced samples of P. lotus . Additionally, photographic records suggest P. lotus is widespread in the Balsas Basin (see below). Thus, it seems likely that the apparent divergence between the sample from Arcelia and the remaining samples of P. lotus is an effect of deficient sampling in areas where P. lotus is expected to occur. Therefore, we provisionally assign the specimen from Arcelia to P. lotus .

Specimens from Morelos assigned to Plestiodon brevirostris brevirostris or regarded as putative intergrades between P. b. brevirostris and P. b. indubitus by Dixon (1969) might represent P. lotus (see Discussion). Unfortunately, those specimens could not be examined.

Etymology. The specific Latin name is treated as a participle in the nominative singular and means bathed, clean, elegant. It makes reference to the appearance of the new species, characterized by having fainter lines than its geographically closest congeners.

Distribution and ecology. Plestiodon lotus is known from 1074–1770 m elevation in the Balsas Basin of the Mexican states of Guerrero, Morelos, Oaxaca, and Puebla. It appears to be widespread in the area and photographic records suggest it may also be present in the vicinities of Amatlán de Quetzalcóatl, northern Morelos, and the Sierra de Nanchititla, western México state.

The specimens of the new species were found in oak and tropical deciduous forests ( Fig. 6 View FIGURE 6 ). Most of them were found under rocks or fallen logs, while some were active on the leaf litter. Plestiodon lotus appears to be more abundant in rocky hillsides with high tree density. Monthly surveys were conducted at the type locality and vicinities, where lizards were only seen between June and February. This suggests a reduction in activity in the warmer months (March to May) associated with the dry season. Vegetation at the type locality is oak forest, where Quercus glaucoides , Q. castanae , and Q. magnoliifolia dominate the arboreal stratum. Climatic variables extracted from BioClim ( Hijmans et al. 2005) are as follows: mean annual temperature is 22.7°C, mean temperatures of the warmest and coldest quarter are 25.2°C and 20.1°C, respectively, and the mean annual precipitation is 885 mm.

There is no direct evidence that Plestiodon lotus is sympatric with other species of the genus. Seven other species of Plestiodon are found in Guerrero, Morelos, Oaxaca, and Puebla, but they differ from P. lotus in elevational range and/or are distributed in different biogeographic provinces ( Fig. 7 View FIGURE7 ). Plestiodon brevirostris is found in mesic forest and xeric scrub at higher elevations of the Sierra Madre del Sur, the Transmexican Volcanic Belt, and the biogeographically complex intersection of this Belt with the Sierra Madre Oriental; P. copei and P. indubitus inhabit mesic forests at higher elevations of the Transmexican Volcanic Belt, though P. indubitus is found fairly low in the Sierra de Taxco and the vicinities of Tepoztlán and Cuernavaca, where it probably comes into contact with P. lotus ; P. lynxe lynxe inhabits a variety of habitats at usually higher elevations of the Central Mexican Plateau, Sierra Madre Occidental, Sierra Madre Oriental, and Transmexican Volcanic Belt; P. nietoi is found in mesic forest at higher elevations of the Sierra Madre del Sur; P. ochoterenae inhabits similar elevations to P. lotus in the Sierra Madre del Sur and both species probably come into contact in the continental slopes of the aforementioned sierra (e.g., near Chilapa de Álvarez, Guerrero); and P. sumichrasti is found in tropical forest at lower elevations of the Veracruzan province ( Feria Ortiz 2011; Feria-Ortiz et al. 2011; Feria-Ortiz & García- Vázquez 2012; Lee 2000; Pavón-Vázquez, pers. obs.). The skink Marisora brachypoda (Taylor) is found in sympatry with P. lotus at the type locality and near Santiago Tamazola, Oaxaca—and presumably in other localities—but differs in microhabitat preference favoring more open areas. Mesoscincus altamirani (Dugès) is another skink that might be sympatric with P. lotus in Guerrero (Mendoza Hernández et al. 2011; Jiménez-Arcos et al. 2016).
