Abstract

In this study, three new localities of Rhynchocalamus melanocephalus melanocephalus (Jan 1862) were recorded in Southern Anatolia. The meristic and mensural characters and the color-pattern features of the specimens of R. m. melanocephalus captured from three new localities were given in detail and compared with the specimens from other localities with regard to literature.
