Podarcis pityusensis puercosensis  (BUCHHOLZ, 1954)


Holotype: ZFMK 12411, paratypes in ZFMK and MTD (= MTKD)

Taxonomic notes:

Recent unpublished studies on Podarcis pityusensis formenterae suggest that this subspecies is incorrectly merged into one single subspecie.
In anticipation of the final results, we will reinstate the previous described subspecies and introduce the not described populations as populations.

Relevant taxonomic literature:
