Abstract

The binational distribution of the gonochoristic (i.e., diploid bisexual) Aspidoscelis inornatus (Little Striped Whiptail) complex extends from parts of Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas in the USA (Taylor 1965; Stevens 1983; Wright and Lowe 1993; Sullivan 2009; Walker et al. 2012) southward into parts of the Mexican states Chihuahua, Coahuila, Durango, Nuevo León, Zacatecas, San Luis Potosí, and Tamaulipas (Axtell 1961; Wright and Lowe 1993; Farr et al. 2009; Walker et al. 2009). Within this vast distributional area, mean and maximum snout vent length (SVL) of A. inornatus varies geographically based in part on the types of habitats and climatic regimens occupied (Wright and Lowe 1993; Walker et al. 2009; Rosenblum and Harmon 2010).
