on top siculus for sure: in meli the dorsal stripe "never" (in 99,9%) reaches the neck.
on bottom it is meli nearly for sure

Never heard of that, but I'm always delighted to learn something new.

so you should run through the picture databases ;)
http://vipersgarden.at/ARdb/species.php?cat=2&subcat=42&subcat3=Podarcis+melisellensis
and here, in the 2nd row, left is the only one I know.
btw, you should have pictures of the same specimen :lol:

...and to prevent a further discussion: a few (1 or 2) little single spots are possible, but never a stripe

Thanks, Mario! I suspected the outcome but I'll never feel confident without asking you, it seems. ;)

So the meli female in our book is an aberrant one.....
