The Tropidurinae are a subfamily of Iguanids lizards native to South America, including the islands of Trinidad and the Galápagos. Commonly known as Neotropical ground lizards, most are ground-dwelling animals, and the subfamily includes some lizards adapted to relatively cold climates, including those of the Andes mountains and Tierra del Fuego. Several species give birth to live young.
The genera are:
- Microlophus – lava lizards and Pacific iguanas (sometimes in Tropidurus)
- Stenocercus – whorltail iguanas
- Tropidurus (including Platynotus, Strobilurus, Tapinurus)
- Uracentron – thornytail iguanas (sometimes in Tropidurus)
