It is now the turn of our comments on supraocular lepidosi s in Scincoidea families, Scincidae and Cordylidae--Gerrhosauridae, thus completing our analytical relation as regards (regarding) the Scincomorpha branch of Autarchoglossa.

Bateman & Fleming (2009) registraron la autotomia en 14 de 18 familias de lagartos, y encontraron que es un fenomeno raro en la mayoria de los taxa de talla grande, mientras que, en familias con miembros de talla mediana a pequena, la presencia de autotomia es variable, ya que dentro de una misma familia existen taxa que poseen y otras que carecen de ella, como es el caso en especies de las familias Anguidae, Phrynosomatidae, Polychrotidae y Scincidae.
Nematodes of the family Physalopteridae have been encountered parasitizing representatives of almost all vertebrate classes (Goldberg and Bursey, 1989), and 35 lizard species in Brazil belonging to the families Iguanidae, Polychrotidae, Leiosauridae, Liolaemidae, Tropiduridae, Anguidae, Teiidae, Gymnophthalmidae, and Scincidae have been identified as hosts of P.
Cave 1 was surrounded with mangroves which partly explains why a number of reptile species particularly belonging to family Scincidae were encountered.
Hedges & Conn (2012) dan una explicacion simplista, al argumentar que ellos dividen Scincidae en siete familias por manejo, debido a que la familia Scincidae es la mas grande dentro de los lagartos, por lo que se hace muy dificil realizar revisiones taxonomicas y descripciones de nuevas especies; entre otras familias, resucitaron la familia Mabuyidae y la subfamilia Mabuyinae, esta ultima propuesta por Mittleman (1952); este argumento es criticado por Pyron et al.
