"Anolis procellaris is described from lowland forest on the Atlantic coast of western Panama. The new species is a small, slender lizard of uncertain relationships. It is superficially similar to Anolis chloris Boulenger, an allopatric species that is found from eastern Panama to northwestern Ecuador, but osteological evidence and different kinds of green pigmentation indicate that the two species belong in different sections of the genus Anolis. A key is provided for determining the species of green anoles that occur in Panama, and photographs from life are presented of the following species: Anolis biporcatus, A. chloris, A. chocorum, A. frenatus, A. latifrons, and A. procellaris. Anolis aquaticus is incidentally recorded from Panama for the first time; the known geographic range of anolis chocorum is extended southward to the Río San Juan in western Colombia, and a specimen from a disjunct population in extreme western Panama is tentatively assigned to this species"--P.
