Text Appearing Before Image:
New data on the Hierro Giant lizard 435 (M. Reilly, in litt.) but no simonyi are there today. In 1956 much of the museum's reptile and amphibian material was given to either the British Museum (Natural History) or the Birmingham City Museum. These specimens have been studied by Wolfgang Bischoff (Museum Alexander Koenig, Bonn) who is preparing a revision of Canarian reptiles, and who generously forwarded me all his unpublished data and photographs. There is one very well-preserved and large specimen of Gallotia simonyi in the recently created Museo Insular de Historia Natural in Santa Cruz de La Palma (o* PMHN 1105). The animal (fig. 5) came from the interesting natural history collections of the local society "La Cosmológica", whose old registers annotate: Num. 1105, Received: February 1891; Donor: D. Eloy Díaz Casañas; Common name: A lizard of the Roque de Salmon It had not been previously studied so I include its measurements (in mm), pholidosis and other descriptive details here (see Table I). The head plates are pitted. Nostril small (1.6 x 2.5 mm). Teeth tricuspid, with the median cusp much higher and more than three times broader than the side cusps; sides subparallel. Guiar fold incipient. The specimen's appendages are complete, its tail being regenerated from the 27th whorl. Colouration is gone but a slight indication of two paler spots can be noticed at the height of the fore limb.
