Small samples of Acauthodactylus lizards were collected throughout the range of both A. pardalis and A. seutellatus species groups in Morocco. A selected set of external characters was analyzed in an attempt to discriminate the species currently recognized within these groups. The analysis shows that there are severe difficulties in accurately identifying different species in the A. pardalis complex, and only A. aureus and, perhaps, A. dumerili can be clearly separated in the A. seutellatus complex. Trends of changes in the character states involved sugest a pattern of irregular (non-clinal) variation at the micro and macrogeographic scales, precluding the accurate identification of most populations and obscuring the phylogenetic relationships within species groups in this area.
