They have several differences (some quite subtle). They actually do have a proportionately larger head than A. sagrei. They also have a yellow dewlap apposed to red (which you can actually see even when restricted). A. cybotes also has a lateral line along each side that is bordered by dark pigment. In this location these anoles outcompete A. sagrei.

How do you tell this apart from sagrei?
