Some authorities put most of the Central and South American anole species (as opposed to the U.S./Caribbean ones) into the genus Norops. This might become the standard soon, but for now there are still many authorities using "Anolis". Also, some authorities consider A. intermedius a synonym for A. laeviventris. Thanks to Axel Fläschendräger for helping to identify this anole.
