Notes

Darevskia portschinskii   is a bisexual “paternal” species for two parthenogenetic forms, D. dahli   and D. rostombekowi   ( Darevsky 1967, Uzzell and Darevsky 1975, Murphy et al. 2000). Species identification in the SZs was carried out by different authors using allozyme markers, multilocus DNA fingerprinting, mini- and micro-satellite markers and morphological features ( Moritz et al. 1992, MacCulloch et al. 1997, Tokarskaya et al. 2001, Arakelyan et al. 2011, Vergun et al. 2014). In the field surveys, species identification was carried out using identification guides ( Darevsky 1967) (Fig. 10 View Figure 10 ). In all nine zones, 16 individuals were captured, including 14 adult females and two males.

The range of D. portschinskii   covers the valleys of the middle reaches of the Kura River within central and southern Georgia, northern Armenia and north-western Azerbaijan ( Darevsky 1967, Tarkhnishvili et al. 2010, Petrosyan et al. 2020). The range in Armenia begins in the vicinity of Stepanavan in the west and is limited in the east by the Sevan Ridge. Suitable habitats in Azerbaijan cover the border territories with Armenia to the valley of the middle reaches of the river Ganjachaya. The presence of the species in the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh was previously mentioned in literature ( Arakelyan et al. 2011). Within the study area, we identified six SZs in the two Provinces of Armenia (Tavush, Lori), two zones in Nagorno-Karabakh and one in Georgia. Darevskia portschinskii   co-exist in three SZs with “daughter” species D. dahli   and D. rostombekowi   in two SZs. Two parenteal bisexual species D. portschinskii   and D. r. raddei   co-exist in two SZs ( Uzzell and Darevsky 1975, Galoyan et al. 2019, Galoyan et al. 2020). All zones are mainly located in the lower band of mountain forests in relatively warm and arid forest and shrub biotopes.
