Abstract

In the present study, we contributed to the knowledge of the distribution of the endemic lizard species, Pamphylian green lizard in Türkiye and pointed out the northernmost localities of the species. Until recently, the occurrence of the species was only known from the Antalya and Mersin provinces of Türkiye. According to the most recent records, it has been reported from some localities (Aşağı Kırıntı, Yukarı Kırıntı, Kasımlar, and Belence) in the Sütçüler district of the Isparta province. In our study, we also found individuals of the species in the Yakaafşar village of Aksu district, Isparta. In addition, we revealed the occurrence of the species from two localities in Ayvalıpınar village, one locality in Güldallı village, and one locality in Kesme village of Sütçüler district.

Abstract

Bu çalışmada, Pamfilya kertenkelesinin Türkiye’deki dağılış bilgisine katkıda bulunduk ve türün bilinen en kuzey lokalitesini belirtmiş olduk. Yakın zamana kadar türün varlığı sadece Türkiye’nin Antalya ve Mersin illerinden biliniyordu. En güncel kayıtlara göre, tür Isparta ilinin Sütçüler ilçesindeki bazı lokalitelerden de (Aşağı Kırıntı, Yukarı Kırıntı, Kasımlar ve Belence) rapor edilmiştir. Çalışmamızda, Isparta ilinin Aksu ilçesinin Yakaafşar köyünde de türe ait bireylere rastladık. Ayrıca, Sütçüler ilçesine bağlı Ayvalıpınar köyünde iki, Güldallı köyünde bir ve Kesme köyünde bir lokaliteden de türün varlığını tespit ettik.
