The phylogenetic relationships of the species of the genus Ctenosaura were analysed using two independent data sets derived from morpho-etho-ecological and genetic (RAPD) markers. The analysis of the data matrix based on morpho-etho-ecological characters yielded a consensus tree with the species of Ctenosaura forming three clades. The consensus tree based on the RAPD data is not as well resolved as the morphological tree. Subgeneric status is proposed for the three monophyletic subgroups within the monophyletic genus Ctenosaura.
