We describe a new species of anole of the genus Norops from near Quebrada Grande, Departamento de Copan, in western Honduras. It is distinguished from all other Mexican and Central American species of the genus by having an ocellated shoulder spot. A suite of other characters is also provided that will distinguish the new species from all other species of Norops of northern Central America.
