Abstract

A new species of the genus Echinosaura is described from the Pacific drainages of northern Ecuador and adjacent Colombia. Evaluation of variation among congeners justifies their recognition as distinct species instead of subspecies as previously proposed. The new lizard occurs in close proximity to Echinosaura horrida and Teuchocercus keyi.
