The Agamidae (Reptilia, Squamata) from the paleogene of western Europe

BELGIAN JOURNAL OF ZOOLOGY, 127(2):123-138.

A new agamid lizard, Tinosaurus europeocaenus is described in the lower Eocene from Dormaal (Belgium). Other agamids from the French Oligocene, Uromastyx europaeus and Agama galliae an revised and their diagnoses are emended. The new genus Quercygama is proposed for A. galliae. The agamid fossil record of Europe is generally less diversified than in other lizard families and it is argued that the presence of Agamidae in Europe results from recurrent acian (or african) dispersals.
