Five extant syntypes of Sceloporus poinsettii Baird and Girard are from two disparate localities. All syntypes are described and illustrated, and both localities restricted. Of two specimens bearing the same number (USNM 2952), the large male is designated lectotype, the female a paralectotype. The type locality is restricted to either the southern part of the Big Burrow Mountains or the vicinity of Santa Rita, Grant Co., New Mexico [USA].
