McCranie and K|hler describe the 39 named species of the family Dactyloide, commonly referred to as anole lizards, that they recognize as occurring in Honduras. They follow two recent phylogenetic analyses and recognize eight genera of anoles, two of which occur in Honduras Anolis and Norops. For each species, they include synonyms geographic distribution, description, identification and similar species, natural history, etymology, and specimens examined. They include color photographs of adults and of the male dewlap for each species. The dichotomous identification keys are in English and Spanish. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
