    Harvey et al. () found that despite advances within particular groups, systematics of the Teiidae has long been unsatisfactory, because few morphological characters have been described for this family. Consequently, most species have been assigned to the large, polyphyletic, and poorly defined genera of Ameiva and Cnemidophorus. They describe .

Abstract. To substantiate the claim of a relationship between generation gland morphology and degree of body armour in cordylid lizards, we studied the nine species in the genus predicted that well armoured species in this clade will have multi-layer generation glands, and lightly armoured species two-layer : le Fras Mouton, Alexander Flemming, Michael Bates, Chris Broeckhoven.

Introduction. The girdled lizards (Cordylidae) are a family of distinctively armored scinciform lizards endemic to Sub-Saharan Africa. There are 80 named taxa within the group, most of which are highly adapted for a rock-dwelling lifestyle, though the family encompasses a wide variety of morphologies, life histories and by: Revision of the African lizards of the family Cordylidae.
