dc.description.abstract "The relationships of the South American gekkonid lizard genus Homonota Gray cannot be determined with any degree of certainty on the basis of the external characters used in the present study. A distributional list and artificial key to all the New World gekkonoid genera are presented as possible aids to future intergeneric studies. The genus Homonota is redefined, and Cubina Gray and Wallsaurus Underwood are considered synonyms. A detailed description of each recognized species is presented, based on external meristic and measurable characters. A new species is described from San Juan Province, Argentina. The nine recognized species appear to form three natural groups on the basis of the arrangement and form of the scales that cover the dorsal body surfaces"--P. [1]. en_US
