Microlophus barringtonensis — Santa Fe Lava Lizard
This species was formerly considered part of Microlophus albemarlensis, which is now restricted to Isabela island and its islets.
On Santa Fe a colony of lava lizards inhabited the inland side of the sandy beach. True to their name, they were mostly perched on hunks of lava that were sticking up through the loose sand.
