This first said spinosus to me, but I think it's a uniform mauritanica.

Image
Acanthodactylus busacki?

Image
Acanthodactylus boskianus?

Image
Tarentola mauritanica?

Image
Image
algirus-hippocrepis intermediate?

I would say Sclerophrys mauritanicus too.

Yes, busacki, or now margaritae (depends on location)

boskianus: hard. location?

Tarentola: maybe boehmei. for mauritanica (incl, ssp. juliae) much to less and small tubercles (location?)

Hemorrhois a. intermedius? location?

5km south of Fort Bou Jerif.

South of Guelmim. Will have to be boehmi, but was a bit unsure as we mainly saw those pink juveniles.

Between Assa and Guelmim.

so the boskianus should be A. eythrurus belli. boskianus would hardly occur nearby.

ok, boehmei

both, hippocrepis and a. intermedius occur there. it is a challenge. intermedius might have bars but also look like faint hippocrepis

Thanks, Mario! However, www.lacerta.de has A. erythrurus belli occurring nowhere near S Morocco... :?

Well, maybe, but '96 is of course ancient ;)

I asked Geniez and Beukema and they told me it's a female busacki.
