Abstract

A lizard frontal bone from the Miocene Valentine Formation of Nebraska formerly incorrectly assigned to the anguid species Peltosaurus minimus is re-assigned to the genus Eumeces. Because no species-diagnostic characters have been identified in the frontal bone of Eumeces, the new combination, Eumeces minimus, is not diagnosable and is a nomen dubium.
