  Comment: Banks et al. (2004) note: "Walker, Cordes, and Taylor (1997, Herpetologica 53:249) erected Cnemidophorus neotessalatus to refer to the triploid members of the Cnemidophorus tessalatus complex, in contrast to treatment by other workers (see review by de Queiroz, Reeder, and Sites, 2000, Squamata -- Lizards, p. 37, In Crother et al., SSAR Herpetological Circulars 29:38)"
