Celestus molesworthi Grant

Portland Coast Galliwasp (Celestus molesworthi)

The Portland Coast Galliwasp was described in 1940; it was apparently restricted to a small region near the north-eastern coast of Jamaica.

The species reaches a size of about 8,5 cm (without the tail).

The Portland Coast Galliwasp was last seen in the 1950s and has not found since; it is thus believed to be very likely extinct.
