A male Sceloporus smithi was collected at Hierve El Agua, in the Municipality of San Lorenzo Albarradas, Oaxaca, México. This record extends the known distribution of the species by approximately 25 km N from the closest acknowledged locality and also represents a new upward elevational record. Even though the elevation at this site is almost 700 m higher than for previously documented localities, the subhumid forest and igneous rock association is similar to other inhabited localities at lower elevations.
