AbstractThe genus Cophotis was established by Peters for an Agamid from Ceylon and his species, Cophotis ceylanica, must be rare and very locally distributed in that island, according to G√ľnther. The latter author gives a detailed description and an excellent figure of the animal in his Reptiles of British India.
A specimen very closely allied to the Ceylon species has been forwarded to our Museum from Sumatra; it differs however in enough important respects from its Ceylonese namesake to permit a specific distinction. In order to facilitate a comparison the points of difference with Cophotis ceylanica are printed in italics.
