Anolis lemurinus — Ghost Anole
Also known as:
Esquinas Rainforest Lodge, Golfito region, Puntarenas province, Costa Rica—September 25, 2001
We found and captured this anole sleeping at night, and photographed it the next day. I had identified it as Anoles pentaprion, but was set straight on iNaturalist.
Some authorities put most of the Central and South American anole species (as opposed to the U.S./Caribbean ones) into the genus Norops. This will probably be the standard soon, but for now there are still many authorities using "Anolis".
