Article Title: Northern distribution limits of Trachylepis vittata and the locally apparent lack of polymorphism

DOI: 10.22067/ijab.v12i2.52821

Attention is drawn to the overlooked occurrence of the Bridled skink in relatively northern provinces of central Turkey. Zoogeographical issues are discussed and ecological implications of living at high elevations are compared to those of lowland conditions. The apparent lack of uniform and bilineata colour pattern morphs, viz. the absence of polymorphism is indicated.

key words:   Trachylepis vittata; polymorphism; distribution; Turkey
