Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1914 Excerpt: ...also from "Anguilla Rock near Trinidad." Cope, however, described that species from specimens having no locality, and Gunther places A. alliaceus as identical with specimens from Dominica. In 1869, Cope (Proc. Amer. phil. soc, 11, p. 159) recorded this species from the island of St. Martins. In 1871 Cope noticed it from St. Eustatius, saying also, "This species was described by me from specimens in the British Museum said to be from 'Anguilla Rock, near Trinidad.' It appears from Dr. van Rijgerma's investigations, (Proc. Acad. nat. sci. Phila., 1871, p. 220) that the island of Anguilla, far north of Trinidad, was meant." l. ', Anolis alliaceus Cope. Cope, Proc. Acad. nat. sci. Phila., 1864, p. 175. Gunther, Ann. mag. nat. hist., 1888, ser. 6, 2, p. 363. This species was first described from specimens without any data as to locality. Gunther declares that specimens from Dominica are indistinguishable from the type, so that Anolis oculatus Cope is a straight synonym of this species. The only unfortunate feature of Giinther's notice is the fact that he claims Garman's A. lividus, from Montserrat, and A. sabanus, from Saba, are the same as Cope's A. alliaceus. This is not the case; and such a statement makes one doubt whether the identification of A. oculatus and A. alliaceus may not perhaps be equally faulty. The descriptions, however, encourage the belief that this settlement of the status of the Dominican lizard may be correct. '. Anolis asper Gahman. Garman, Bull. Essex inst., 1887, 19, p. 31. In regard to this and other species, the validity of which has been doubted by Boulenger in the Zoological record for 1887, I can only say that the types agree with Garman's descriptions; and a careful reading of these will in every case, I think, ...
