(No photo--sorry!)

In Monteverde, a fairly small (<5 cm excluding the tail) anole scurrying on leaf litter, overall coloration a brownish pattern that blended with the dead leaves, slightly paler underside.


I don't have Leender's guide, so help would be appreciated.

This photograph of a ground anole (Anolis humilis) is identical to the one I saw.

Solved ID!

Purchased a new field guide for Christmas; turns out my reptile was actually a male gray lichen anole (Anolis intermedius).
