The above list follows Klaver & Boehme, 1997 which should be consulted for the relevant synonomies. Species followed by * are new species described since their checklist.

Note: Taxonomy is not static. As new discoveries are made, new species are added or sometimes a species is found to be the same as another previously described species and is then synonymised with that species. This happened with Brookesia betsileana Ahl which was later found to be identical to Brookesia nasus nasus Boulenger. The present list may already be out of date.

Please advise Lynn Raw of any errors, omissions or new developments.
