Meroles suborbitalis

 

Meroles suborbitalis

 

  (PETERS, 1869)

 
 
 

Throughout the southern third of Namibia (from Mariental) and north-west through the escarpment, pro-Namib and Namib to at least the mouth of the Hoanib River (terrestrial). The taxonomy of this species is presently in disarray; Damaraland forms are distinct from southern Namibian forms, as are also isolated coastal populations between Walvis Bay and Lüderitz. This species occurs in the Skeleton Coast Park, West Coast Recreation Area, Walvis Bay Reserve, Namib-Naukluft Park, Hardap Recreation Resort, Naute Recreation Resort, National Diamond Coast Recreation Area, Sperrgebiet and the Ai-Ais/ Hunsberg Reserve.
