The Platysaurus intermedius complex (Sauria: Cordylidae) in the Transvaal, South Africa, with descriptions of three new taxa

  • N.H.G. Jacobsen

Abstract

Three new Platysaurus taxa, including two species and one subspecies, are described. The new taxa are compared with others in the P. intermedius complex in a character analysis indicating relationships. Two of the taxa are closely related to P. intermedius parvus Broadley, differing from it in colour, lepidosis and the number of femoral pores. The third taxon is most closely related to Platysaurus i. wilhelmi Hewitt but differs in colour and scalation.
