Trabzon Lizard

Postby André Van Hecke » Mon Sep 09, 2013 9:05 am

Dear Forum Members,
A birding friend has been visiting Turkey and took in the surroundings of Trabzon 2 lizard photos (he knows my interest in A&R).
Now he is asking for a determination.
I have never been in that part of Turkey and did not have herpeto-literature for that region.
I did some effort with photos of Georgia but ended unsuccesfully near different Darevski specs.
Woh can help me please?
Sincere greetings
André

Dear Andre,

along the Turkish Black Sea coast from Trabzon east to the Georgian border only two Darewvskia sp. occur: Darevskia clarkorum and Darevskia rudis.
I would say this is a pair of D. rudis (size, and grass-green colour in male).
