|Lacerta pamphylica (Pamphylian Lizard) [Pamfilya/Antalya Yeşil Kertenkelesi]|
Pamphylian Lizard is a monotypic and also endemic green lizard species to the SW Anatolia (Antalya province). It is distributed coastal regions and northern slope of Taurus Mts. It has an unique colouration especially on dorsum and neck- separating it from the closely related species L. trilineata (Balkan Green Lizard) and L. media (Eastern Green Lizard). The species name came after the region name, Pamphylia, including a part of the south of Asia Minor in ancient geography, between Lycia and Cilicia, extending from the Mediterranean to Mount Taurus (modern day Antalya province, Turkey).
