dc.description.abstract "Three monospecific genera of Neotropical amphisbaenids, Aulura, Bronia, and Mesobaena are redescribed, based on all known available specimens. A key to all American genera of amphisbaenians is included. Each form is considered a valid species, seemingly sufficiently discrete to justify the retention of the genus. Only for Mesobaena are sample size and field data sufficient to document geographical variation"--P. [1]. en_US
