    Action: changed name from "Plestiodon skiltonianus" to "Aspidoscelis hyperythra "

    Reviewer's comments:
         "The long toes and granular scales differentiate Aspidoscelis from Plestiodon; the only Aspidoscelis with clean light stripes in the area is A. hyperythra. Great find and beautiful photo!!"
