Taxonomische Hinweise:

Systematics is debatable: perhaps some subspecies are not valid (Tuniyev & Ostrovskikh 2006; Kosushkin & Grechko 2013): Distribution patterns and geographical variations of Darevskia derjugini (Nikolsky, 1898) are discussed. D. derjugini has been found to have a continuous habitat within the Russian Federation and Abkhazia and a clinal variation of its morphological characteristics. Specimens from the more ancient southern foothill populations have much more pholidosis characters than lizards from the northern and high-mountain populations formed after the Glacier period (Pleistocene). On the basis of our data D. derjugini should be considered as a monotypic species with the subspecies D. d. silvatica, D. d. boehmei and D. d. abchasica being junior synonyms of D. d. derjugini. Verification is required.
