Notes

Darevskia valentini   is a bisexual “paternal” species for two parthenogenetic D. armeniaca   and D. unisexualis   species ( Darevsky 1967, Murphy et al. 2000). Species identification in SZs was undertaken by authors at different times using allozyme loci, multilocus DNA fingerprinting, mini- and micro-satellite markers and morphological features ( Darevsky 1967, Uzzell and Darevsky 1975, Moritz et al. 1992, Danielyan et al. 2008, Arakelyan et al. 2011, Carretero et al. 2018). In the field, D. valentini   identification was made using guides according to Darevsky ( Darevsky 1967), (Fig. 9 View Figure 9 ). In all nine SZs, 13 individuals were captured, including 11 adult females and two males.

The range of D. valentini   is divided into several rather vast, but isolated areas, including mountain meadows and mountain steppes of Armenia, Nagorno-Karabakh, southern Georgia and eastern Turkey ( Petrosyan et al. 2019a, Petrosyan et al. 2019b). The most extensive areas for its presence cover the mountainous zone of the Geghama Range, which extends to Lake Sevan, in the mountainous region of Aragats, north-western Armenia and the surrounding areas of southern Georgia. During the field survey in 2018-2019, eight SZs were identified with the "daughter" species D. armeniaca   and two zones with D. unisexualis   . Hybrid individuals were found in three zones (Lchashen, Kuchak and Tezh), which were previously mentioned in literature ( Danielyan et al. 2008, Carretero et al. 2018). The SZs were located on stone bridges along highways, on large stones and clay rocks in the mountain-steppe, mountain meadow subalpine zone of the northern and eastern parts of Armenia, in southern Georgia and on the border with Nagorno-Karabakh.
