Arthrosaura is a genus of spectacled lizards (family Gymnophthalmidae).[1][2] These lizards occur in northern South America. There appears to be two species groups: a longer-legged, short-bodied group with four supraocular scales (A. guianensis, A. kockii, and A. testigensis), and a short-legged, gracile group with three supraoculars (A. reticulata, A. synaptolepis, A. tyleri, and A. versteegii).[3]


There are nine species:[2]
