Abstract:   (2860 Views)
We report Calotes geissleri from Chandel district in Manipur, India. Till recently allocated to Calotes mystaceus, this complex was revised and C. geissleri described from northeast India and Myanmar. We here report its occurrence in Chandel district, Manipur, adjacent to other northeastern states from where it was known previously. Our Manipur specimens have 0.003% genetic distance from its published type sequences, thereby confirming the identification and the range extension.
