Gerrhonotus parvus

The Gerrhonotus parvus is classified as Endangered (EN), considered to be facing a very high risk of extinction in the wild.

Originally classified as Gerrhonotus parvus Knight and Scudday, this taxon was reassigned to Elgaria based on morphology. To investigate its phylogenetic affinities, we generated mitochondrial DNA sequence data and conducted phylogenetic analyses together with published sequences for a broad taxonomic sampling of anguid lizards.
