Fletcher (1979) stated:-

A junior homonym of Cyclura Harlan, 1825, J. Acad. nat. Sci. Philad. 4 (2): 250 - Rept. There is no objective replacement name, but C. excisa is congeneric with Amphitorna lechriodes Turner, 1926, the type-species of Amphitorna Turner, 1911. The latter is thus available as a subjective replacement name.

See: AMPHITORNA Turner, 1911.
