LACERTIDAE 

UF 157202View Materials (Fig. 59 in Krysko et al. 2011; MorphoBank M 88650View Materials) was reported as the Japanese Grass Lizard, Takydromus tachydromoides (Schlegel 1838)  . However, W. Böhme and H. Ota (personal communication) reidentified this photographic voucher as the Ocellated Grass Lizard, Takydromus sexlineatus ocellatus ( Guérin-Méneville 1829)  (see Cowan 1971; Zhao and Adler 1993 for publication history), a morphologically similar lacertid indigenous to a region of southeastern Asia that includes eastern India, southern China (including Hong Kong), eastern Myanmar, Thailand to Vietnam, and southward into the northern Malay peninsula ( Zhao and Adler 1993; Manthey and Grossmann 1997), although the exact indigenous distribution of specimens putatively identified as T. sexlineatus  , as well as subspecific classification of the species requires further study ( Lin et al. 2002; Ota et al. 2002; Bhupathy et al. 2009).
