1. Body temperatures (Tbs) and thermoregulatory precision of 7 sham shielded and 7 parietal eye shielded Podarcis muralis were measured in a linear thigmothermal gradient over a 24 h period.
2. Shielding the parietal eye did not alter the mean Tb selected over the 24 h period.
3. Both groups selected Tbs that did not differ between photophase and scotophase.
4. Shielding the parietal eye did not influence thermoregulatory precision when measured over the 12 h of photophase, but from 0600–1200 h EST parietal eye shielded lizards thermoregulated more precisely than sham shielded lizards.
