Abstract
We update the southeastern distribution of Anolis fuscoauratus d’Orbigny, 1837 based on newly collected specimens and on specimens from scientific collections misidentified or deposited with questionable identifications. We include photographs showing the coloration of live individuals and a distribution map for this species in the southeastern Atlantic Forest of Brazil. Although this species is rather rare, it is more regionally widespread than previously realized and has an altitudinal range of approximately 30–800 m above sea level.
