Abstract

© 2015 Folium Publishing Company.As a result of our study, the new data on distribution of Stellagama stellio (Linnaeus, 1758) in Anatolia were obtained. The meristic pholidolial, metric (morphometric) characters and color-pattern features of specimens of S. stellio collected from five new localities in Turkey were given in detail and compared with regard to literature. Specimens examined in the present study were similar to S. s. daani specimens mentioned in the literature.
