Cyclura sp. ‘Barbuda’

Barbuda Iguana (Cyclura sp.)

This form, which might have been a distinct species, is currently known only from a single bone, a braincase, found on the island of Barbuda.

The species apparently disappeared as early as shortly after the occupation of the island by Amerindian settlers.
