Pertinent taxonomic references. Rebouças-Spieker & Vanzolini (1990), Ávila-Pires (1995), Miralles et al. (2005b, 2006, 2009a, 2009b), Whiting et al. (2006), Miralles & Carranza (2010), Hedges & Conn (2012).

Distribution and habitat. Panopa carvalhoi  is endemic to northern Amazonia, between the upper Orinoco River, in Venezuela, and the Branco River, on both sides, in Brazil (state of Roraima) ( Fig. 1View FIGURE 1). It is semi-arboreal and diurnal, inhabits primary and secondary, relatively low (canopy 20–25 m high), terra firme forest, where it is found on tree trunks, primarily palms, and on fallen vegetation, at least up to two meters above ground ( O’Shea 1989 —identified as Mabuya  sp. nov.; Rebouças-Spieker & Vanzolini 1990; Ávila-Pires 1995; Vitt & Zani 1998).
