The other anole species that we’ve found in Palo Verde is Norops sericeus.  It’s much less common than the other anole (Norops cupreus); we’ve only encountered three in my time here.  The snot of N. sericeus is extended and more pointed, but it’s dewlap is certainly the easiest way to tell the two species apart.
