Interesting. This significantly reduces the necessity to visit Ikaria for me ;-)
Thanks for posting.

How cool to publish papers in the future ;)

A decent piece of work. Some of us get an armchair tick out of this, I presume.

Yes, but you should rename your Anatololacerta in your Rhodes report on your website :lol:

Yep. And still unclear what's on Kastellorizo - maybe another species for the Greek species list :lol:

You really think about a separate (sub)species on this island? :lol:

Watch the sea depth between the island and mainland ;)

Who knows? - maybe you remember the mess with Ablepharus on that Island ;)

But seriously: If there is a stable population on Megisti at all, it is highly likely an introduced population. There are ferries from Rhodos and from Kas/Turkey. If the lizards are from Rhodos, they are pelasgiana. If they are from Turkey, they should be budaki. This would be a new species on the Greek herp list.

I just wonder what should be the English / German names of the new species?
