Infestation of the southern alligator lizard (Squamata: Anguidae

The tongue and Jacobson's organ function as a chemosensory system in the autarchoglossa, a morphologically similar group of lizard families including Anguidae

The legless lizard genus Ophisaurus (Squamata: Anguidae

For example, in Anguidae
, we analyzed transitions occurring (1) among species within two genera (Diploglossus and Elgaria), (2) among genera or species within two subfamilies (Diploglossinae and Gerrhonotinae; Anguininae was excluded because all species are viviparous) and, (3) among all subfamilies, genera, or species within the family.
Por su parte, los reptiles de la familia Phrynosomatidae fueron los mas frecuentes en las etapas tempranas de recuperacion de ambos tratamientos silvicolas, mientras que los miembros de la familia Anguidae
estuvieron presentes en etapas de recuperacion avanzada.
Nevertheless, this assignment remains uncertain as a referral to Anguidae
cannot be ruled out.
Nematodes of the family Physalopteridae have been encountered parasitizing representatives of almost all vertebrate classes (Goldberg and Bursey, 1989), and 35 lizard species in Brazil belonging to the families Iguanidae, Polychrotidae, Leiosauridae, Liolaemidae, Tropiduridae, Anguidae
, Teiidae, Gymnophthalmidae, and Scincidae have been identified as hosts of P.
