REMARK

Based on Hosseinian Yousefkhani et al. (2013) this species is negatively affected by human activities, so more protection is needed for this species. Rastegar-Pouyani et al. (2013) stated that the coordinates given by Eiselt (1995) (33°11’N, 35°21’E) for this species are obviously incorrect since this is significantly far from the type locality given by him. They provided the coordinates of collecting locality (37°20’53”N, 55°40’28”E) for their collected material, being far from the Eiselt locality. Darevskia steineri   , D. schaekeli Ahmedzadah, Flecks, Carretero, Mozaffari, Böhme, Harris, Freitas   & Röd-der, 2013, D. defilippii ( Camerano, 1877)   and D. kopetdaghica Ahmedzadah, Flecks, Carretero, Mozaffari, Böhme, Harris, Freitas & Rödder, 2013   , form the D. defilippii   -complex ( Ahmadzadeh et al. 2013).
