Easily confused with Anolis porcatus, the Cuban anole, which has recently been introduced to Florida. The Cuban anole is also green (or brown), but unlike carolinensis, frequently will be specked with some white isolated scales around the neck and/or body. Females and some males have a light middorsal stripe bordered by darker pigment.
