Phoxophrys is a genus of lizards within the family Agamidae. The species are distributed in Sumatra and Borneo.[1]

Etymology

The generic name, Phoxophrys, is from the Greek words φοξός (phoxos) meaning "pointed", and ὀφρúς (ophrys) meaning "eyebrow".[2]

Description

The genus Phoxophrys closely resembles the genus Japalura but differs in a number of characters, for example by the absence of a dorsal crest, and by having a relatively shorter and deeper head. Male Phoxophrys have a tail that is swollen basally and is flattened above, whereas females have a cylindrical tail.[3]

Species

The genus Phoxophrys contains the following five species which are recognized as being valid.[1]

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