|Scientific Name:||Ctenosaura alfredschmidti|
|Species Authority:||Köhler, 1995|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Near Threatened ver 3.1|
|Reviewer(s):||Hudson, R. & Alberts, A. (Iguana Red List Authority)|
Ctenosaura alfredschmidti is known only from the vicinity of the type locality in southern Campeche, Mexico. Total range is not known, although it is currently known only from an area of less than 100 km² (CR B1). Population size and trends are unknown, although it is thought that there may be fewer than 2,500. Quality of habitat is believed to be decreasing and future population declines may be seen due to habitat loss (CR B1b(iii)). Not enough data are available to be able to say how many locations this species occurs in or degree of fragmentation. However, it nearly meets the thresholds for CR B1ab(iii) and therefore is assessed as Near Threatened.
