Femoral pores are a part of a holocrine secretory gland found on the inside of the thighs of certain lizards and amphisbaenians which releases pheromones to attract mates or mark territory. In certain species only the male has these pores and in other species, both sexes have them, with the male's being larger. Femoral pores appear as a series of pits or holes within a row of scales on the. REPTILIA: SQUAMATA: SAURIA: XANTUSIIDAE Catalogue of American Amphibians and Reptiles. Fders, GM. and CA. Drost.

It is most similar to L. mayae, L. lipetzi, and L. sylvaticum. In areas where it occurs with L. mayae and L. lipetzi, individual scale characters segregate all specimens, Common Names: E: Yellow-spotted Night Lizard, G: Krokodilnachtechse.
We still lack any data for the Cordylidae (girdled lizards; 68 sp.), Gerrhosauridae (plated lizards; 37 sp.) or–the focus of the present study–Xantusiidae (night lizards; 35 sp.), and this paucity of data limits our ability to study macro-evolutionary patterns of sex chromosome evolution both across this clade, and in squamates as a whole.

Xantusiidae (night lizards) is a clade of small-bodied, cryptic lizards endemic to the New World. The clade is characterized by several features that would benefit from interpretation in a phylogenetic context, including: (1) monophyletic status of extant taxa Cricosaura, Lepidophyma, and Xantusia; (2) a species endemic to Cuba (Cricosaura typica) of disputed age; (3) origins of the Cited by: Testing species boundaries in an ancient species complex with deep phylogeographic history: genus Xantusia (Squamata: Xantusiidae).
