Can anyone help with these? I assume this one is a Draco - I was using the black band across the eye as the diagnostic but did not get anywhere with the green coloration (there was a similarity in D.volans and D.blanfordii though) .... they were taken in Ranong

And this Calotes I think is the variable (or the Emma) ??? It was taken at Krung Ching sub-station in Nakon Sri Thammarat

The Draco is D. blanfordii and the Calotes is C. emma.

The Calotes emma can be distinguished by the spine right behind the eye. C. versicolor lacks this spine.

The Dracos are a bit more complicated. The D. blanfordii can be distinguished by size, it's quite a bit larger than most of the other species in this range. Yellow/ whitish long dewlaps. Usually body a bit greenish tint. And the wing coloration/ pattern as shown in your picture. Small eye.
