Pseudocalotes is a genus of agamid lizards endemic to Southeast Asia.

Taxonomy and description

Pseudocalotes was disassociated from the genus Calotes by Moody (1980). Pseudocalotes is distinguished from Calotes in having weak limbs, as may be noted in one of the species named brevipes. It is distinguished from the C. versicolor group in having mixed orientation of dorsal scales, and lacking spines on the head. It is distinguished from Bronchocela in lacking a cheek skin fold, and in having short weak limbs. Pseudocalotes species do not have any enlarged compressed set of scales behind the orbit.

Geographic range

Pseudocalotes does not occur west of Sumatra and might occur in the Isthmus of Kra and Myanmar. A specimen was reported from N.E. India in the past though never verified.

Species of genus Pseudocalotes

The Indochinese group

The Sundaland group

Nota bene: A binomial authority in parentheses indicates that the species was originally described in a genus other than Pseudocalotes.
