::Hello Jeff. I have never seen literature that IDs P. coronatum coronatum as an livebearer. If P.c.c. were a livebearer it would be removed from the Coronatum Group and a new species designator would be in order. The Coronatum Group members are all egg layers
:and some members may double clutch in a favorable season. If you have a reference to the report of live birth for P.c.c., I would like to read it. The picture posted looks very close to being P. asio from central Mexico. (The markings and coloration. The horn assembly looks like P. asio too.) Very interesting. Lester G. Milroy III


Hey Lester,
The first post picture is of phrynosoma coronatum coronatum.It looks very different from the subspecies found here. Their may be a possibility that this species is just finishing evolving from oviparous to viviparous or vice versa.This is a full body photofrom The Amphibians and Reptiles of Baja California by Grismer. This is one source of the possibility the other I have in one of my files. It was an old report so I didn't think much of it when I first read it. Now after reading this I think it needs to be looked into.
