Sphaerodactylus ariasae is the name of a new lizard species discovered on a Caribbean island by researchers from Puerto Rico and Pennsylvania State universities. A full-grown lizard of this species is only 1.6 centimetres long. It is as small as the species listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the smallest reptile in the world, S. partenopion, found in the British Virgin Islands.
