Name[edit]

  • Plestiodon finitimus Okamoto & Hikida, 2012
Holotype: KUZ R65128, an adult male, Kyoto University Museum Zoological Collection (KUZ). Collected on June 16, 2008 by Taku Okamoto.
Type locality: Ikegami, Ota Ward, Tokyo Metropolis, eastern Japan (site 11, Fig. 1, N35°35', E139°42' [WGS84 coordinate], 20 m elevation).
Etymology: The Latin epithet finitimus means ‘adjacent’ or ‘neighboring’ and refers to the parapatric geographic range of this species with the two congeners P. latiscutatus and P. japonicus. The epithet also means ‘related to’ or ‘similar to’ and refers to the morphological similarity to P. latiscutatus and P. japonicus owing to their close kinship.
