I did not know what kind of anole this was, but Chris Harrison ID'd it as an A. sericus.

I'm not sure I know better necessarily, but I think of A. rodriguezi as being more boldy patterned.
It is also more of a forest species, whereas sericeus isn't that picky.

There was some uncertainty when it was discussed on the forum...I had been thinking rodriguezi, but you know better than I do.

I think this is Anolis sericeus.
