The following counts were taken: number of ventrals (VS), number of subcaudals (SC), number of dorsals 1-head length behind the head (DS1), number of dorsals at the position of middle ventral (DS2), number of dorsals 1-head length before the tail (DS3), number of infralabials touched by the first sublabial (ISL), number of supralabials (Left + Right) (SL1), number of supralabials touching the eyes (Left + Right) (SL2), number of loreals (Left + Right) (LR), number of infralabials (Left + Right) (IL), number of temporals (Left + Right) (TP), number of postoculars (Left + Right) (PO), number of supralabials (Left + Right) (SL).

Comparisons and possible relationships: the new species belongs to a cluster of species characterized by the putative synapomorphy of juxtaposed postocular and subocular scales.
