We describe a new species of anole of the Norops schiedei group from western Guatemala. A distinctive suite of characters distinguish it from the remaining species of the group (e.g., prenasal scales fused to circumnasal; most midventral scales weakly keeled; all scales in prefrontal depression strongly keeled; scales comprising supraorbital semicircles about same size as scales between semicircles; all keels on dorsal surface of head oriented nearly longitudinally; hemipenis large and bilobate).
