YANOMAMIA  gen.nov.

Type species: Yanomamia guianensis ( MacCulloch & Lathrop 2001)  comb. nov.

Diagnosis. Yanomamia  is characterized by having parietals and interparietal forming an almost straight posterior margin of the head, keeled and imbricate dorsal scales in transverse but not in longitudinal rows, smooth and posteriorly rounded ventral scales in longitudinal and transverse rows, enlarged temporal scales, gular scales wider than long in two longitudinal rows marginated by diminutive granules continuous and similar in size to those on the lateral sides of neck, femoral pores in the center of a single scale, and transverse vilosities of the hemipenis with spinules.

Content. Yanomamia guianensis ( MacCulloch & Lathrop 2001)  comb. nov.; Yanomamia hoogmoedi ( Kok 2008)  comb. nov., and possibly Yanomamia  sp. from Churi Tepui, Venezuela (PK 2068V; 05°16'N, 62°00' W) referred in Kok et al. (2012).

Etymology. The generic name, feminine, is a homage to the Yanomami Indians and their lands which largely coincide with the Tepui area, the highland region of the Guiana Shield inhabited by these lizards.
