Re: Lizard ID request

sonarae and flagellicauda or almost impossible to tell apart. I'd rather have in hand (yeah I know good luck with that one). Based on range maps in both Hollcross and Jones, sonarae is what I'd say. But you are not far from both of their ranges.

Chris is right, it is a gularis. Racerunners don't have spotting in the lateral fields unless its a birth defect or hybridization. Also the shade of green on the back is typical of gularis.
