cranial osteology of Ophisaurus apodus are known especially from the paper of FEJÉRV ÁRY -LÁNGH (1923) which is a careful but rather static description. Little is known, however, on the dentition in different stages of ontogeny. The only attempt to show the mode of tooth replacement in the genus

. intergularis seems to be very similar also to the nominate form P. c. cas- tanoides , being distinguished mainly by the shape of their intergular scute but also in cranial osteology (Hewitt, 1931; Bour, 1983).
