J. F. Gmelin, 1789,
Species name has normally been given as brasiliana, but this name is based on a drawing and a written description not clearly identifiable as of present species (indeed, some points would appear to preclude this); torquata, proposed by same author on following page of same publication, was used in Brazilian literature until 1966, and should be reinstated#R. Name of S race often misspelt as furcifera, but original name is invariable and present spelling correct#R. Two subspecies recognized.
