Does anyone know the English translation for Pogona Vitticeps? I've searched online and can't find the literal translation. Thanks in advance.

Pogona is the latin name for a genus (a subset of animals very closely related to each other)

All I could find for Vitticeps is:


Etymology of the Latin word vitticeps

the Latin word vitticeps
derived from the Latin word vitta (a band; band, ribbon; fillet)
derived from the Proto-Indo-European root *wei-

using the Latin suffix -ceps
derived from the Latin word caput (head; small head; head; head; head; head; person; life; heading; chapter, principal division)
derived from the Proto-Indo-European root *kaput- (head)

Maybe Rick knows more?
