Abstract

Abstract

The occurrence of the invasive Brown anole, Anolis sagrei from the Pacific coast of Mexico is confirmed based on squamation and the use of morphological characters. A PCA was performed to explore the morphological differences between the invasive anole and the native Clouded anole Anolis nebulosus. Some of the potential implications for dry tropical ecosystems and native anoles are discussed.
