Name edit

Phymaturus extrilidus Lobo, Espinoza, Sanabria & Quiroga, 2012: 14

  • Holotype: MCN-UNSa 2657, adult ♂, collected by R.E. Espinoza, F. Lobo, L. Quiroga, and E. Sanabria on 12 December 2007.
  • Type locality: “Argentina, Provincia de San Juan, Departamento Ullum, Reserva Natural de Uso Múltiple Don Carmelo, hillside (Sierra La Invernada) behind the field station, 30º55’91’’S, 69º04’98’’W, 3133 m”.
  • Etymology: The name is a Latin adjective for unterrified or dauntless, which is in reference to the approachability of this new species in nature. The boldness of these lizards is in contrast to the authors’ experience with most other species of Phymaturus, which tend to seek refuge in rock crevices at the slightest disturbance—even when approached slowly from a distance.
