That UT herps of TX website has the subspecies colors wrong. Yellow should be longipunctatus, blue is annulatus and green is merriami. I know this because I screwed mine up using the same site. C.m. longipunctatus is the "Presidio Canyon Lizard". Presidio county is the one in yellow. The Peterson guide has their ranges/ssp. correct.

Again, http://www.zo.utexas.edu/research/txherps/lizards/sceloporus.merriami.html, range maps show annulatus in Presidio Co and m. merriami in Brewster Co?

This should be merriami annulatus in Brewster county.
