Abstract

Preparation of the syntypes of Cheilophis huerfanoensis Gilmore permits the designation of a lectotype. Whereas Gilmore considered Cheilophis a snake of "unknown family reference," this genus is now referred to the Boidae; it may belong to the subfamily Boinae, but its precise relationships within the Boinae are obscure.
