Scandensia ciervensis (Evans and Barbadillo 1998) Early Cretaceous~130 mya ~7 cm skull length was orginally considered a sister to living squamates (Iguania + Scleroglossa). Here Scandensia was derived from a sister to Paliguana and Marmoretta. Scandensia was a sister to Sophineta.
Distinct from Paliguana, the skull of Scandensia had a larger postorbital portion and a larger naris. As in Marmoretta, the lacrimal was smaller to missing. Subequal fore and hind limbs together with long, tendril-like digits with trenchant claws mark Scandensia as an arboreal climber. It had lightly-built vertebrae and thick ribs.
