Notes

The parthenogenetic lizard D. rostombekowi  has a hybrid origin ( Darevsky 1967, Uzzell and Darevsky 1975). The "maternal" species for D. rostombekowi  is D. r. raddei  and "paternal" is D. portschinskii  ( Darevsky 1967, Uzzell and Darevsky 1975, Murphy et al. 2000, Ryskov et al. 2017). The identification of Darevskia rostombekowi  in SZs was undertaken in different years using allozyme loci, mt-DNA, multilocus DNA fingerprinting, mini- and micro-satellite markers and morphological features ( Darevsky 1967, Uzzell and Darevsky 1975, Macculloch et al. 1997, Fu et al. 2000a, Murphy et al. 2000, Martirosian et al. 2002, Petrosyan et al. 2003, Arakelyan et al. 2011, Ryskov et al. 2017). In the field, D. rostombekowi  was identified using species identification guides according to Darevsky ( Darevsky 1967) (Fig. 5View Figure 5), since it has previously been shown that identification, based on visual observation, did not cause confusion between the species ( Martirosian et al. 2002, Petrosyan et al. 2003, Arakelyan et al. 2011, Ryskov et al. 2017). We captured and identified 17 individuals in 10 SZs. All individuals were found to be females, determined by visual inspection of the genitals.

Darevskia rostombekowi  has a relatively small range, consisting of several different isolated areas within northern Armenia, north-western Azerbaijan, the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh and a small alpine relict isolated area from the main range on the south-eastern coast of Lake Sevan ( Macculloch et al. 1997, Arakelyan et al. 2011). Darevskia rostombekowi  has at least two SZs with both parental species D. portschinskii  and D. r. raddei  in the two north-western provinces of Tavush and Lori in Armenia. The number of SZs, where there was co-existence with other parthenogenetic forms of D. armeniaca  , D. dahli  and D. unisexualis  , are four, three and two, respectively. In general, SZs with other species of the genus Darevskia  located in the forest zone, mountain meadows, mountain steppes and anthropogenic transformed habitats, were identified within the range of the species.
