Notes

Although early studies found very low genetic differences between D. r. raddei   and D. r. nairensis   ( Bobyn et al. 1996, Fu et al. 2000a), later studies ( Arnold et al. 2007 Grechko et al. 2007, Omelchenko et al. 2016), however, considered them as two subspecies. Darevskia r. raddei   and D. r. nairensis   were considered as different subspecies, since they are reproductively isolated in terms of distinctive periods of mating ( Danielyan 1989). In the field, D. r. nairensis   was identified using identification guides according to Darevsky ( Darevsky 1967), (Fig. 8 View Figure 8 ). During the field survey, we captured and identified 13 individuals, including ten adult females and three males.

The range of D. r. nairensis   covers central, south-western Armenia, the western shore of Lake Sevan and is restricted to the north-eastern part of Armenia. This species also inhabits neighbouring regions of north-eastern Turkey and southern Georgia. In Armenia, there are several isolated populations in the north Provinces (Tumanyan and Lori) and in the south-central part (Karmrashen and Vayots Dzor Provinces). During the field survey, six SZs were identified in the three Provinces of Gegharkunik, Kotayk and Shirak. This species has a relatively large number of SZs - four with a "daughter" species D. unisexualis   and, with other parthenogenetic species, D. armeniaca   and D. dahli   , there are two and one SZs, respectively. Our data show that D. r. nairensis   has only one SZ with a bisexual species D. valentini   . The SZs are mainly located in the rocky habitats of the mountain steppe.
