Notes

The bisexual species, D. raddei   , is considered as a complex ( Darevskia raddei   sensu lato) containing four forms (subspecies) “raddei”, “nairensis”, “vanensis” and “chaldoranensis” ( Grechko et al. 2007, Rastegar-Pouyani et al. 2012, Omelchenko et al. 2016, Freitas et al. 2016). However, the subspecies " raddei   " ( D. r. raddei   ) is the only form widely distributed in Armenia, Nagorno-Karabakh, Azerbaijan and the northern province of Ardabil of Iran ( Freitas et al. 2016). Identification of D. r. raddei   individuals in different SZs was undertaken by authors using allozyme markers, mt-DNA, multilocus DNA fingerprinting, mini- and micro-satellite markers and morphological traits ( Bobyn et al. 1996, Fu et al. 2000a, Grechko et al. 2007, Korchagin et al. 2007, Korchagin and Tokarskaya 2010, Omelchenko et al. 2016, Freitas et al. 2016). In the field, D. r. raddei   was identified using identification guides according to Darevsky ( Darevsky 1967) (Fig. 7 View Figure 7 ). During the field survey, we captured and identified 11 individuals, including nine adult females and two males.

The bisexual form of D. r. raddei   is widespread in southern Armenia, north-eastern Turkey, north-western regions of Nagorno-Karabakh, south and south-western Azerbaijan and in adjacent regions of north-western Iran ( Darevsky 1967). During the field survey, five SZs were identified with other parthenogenetic and bisexual species in isolated populations in north-eastern Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh. Three SZs exist in north-eastern Armenia in the Tavush Province and two zones in Nagorno-Karabakh (Shahumyan Province). This species in the two SZs co-exists with the bisexual species D. portschinskii   and in two SZs with the "daughter" species, D. rostombekowi   . The identified SZs are located in rocky habitats in forest and mountain steppes, including the stone walls of buildings (e.g. on the walls of churches) and stone ruins.
