CommentSynonymy: partly after SALVADOR 1982. Various authors questioned the validity of the 3 subspecies (e.g. SALVADOR 1982, ARNOLD 1984, DISI et al. 2001). For comments on the types of this species see BAUER & GÜNTHER 1995. TAMAR et al. 2014 synonymized syriacus with asper. TAMAR et al. 2016 synonymized A. b. khattensis and A. b. nigeriensis with Acanthodactylus boskianus asper. The Turkish population (A. s. ataturi) is considered as a relict of a previously wider distribution (Psonis et al. 2016).

Phylogenetics: A. schreiberi nested within A. b. asper, and the subspecies A. schreiberi syriacus nested within a distinct lineage of A. b. asper (Tamar et al. 2014). Also, A. b. khattensis and A. b. nigeriensis are nested within A.b. asper (K. Tamar, pers. comm., 23 Oct 2014). Psonis et al. 92016) found that the boskianus species group is monophyletic with at least four distinct subclades within A. boskianus, thus indicating that this taxon should be considered as a species complex.

Description: The vertebral dark stripe is simple in A. opheodurus but forked in A. boskianus. The vertebral stripe is forked but light-colored in two geographically adjacent related taxa, A. b. boskianus (Daudin, 1802) of northern Egypt and A. schreiberi syriacus Boettger, 1878 of coastal Israel.

Diagnosis (nigeriensis): “Lacertidé associé aux régions de savane soudano-sahélienne du sud du Niger et du nord du Nigeria, génétiquement distinct des populations du complexe Acanthodactylus boskianus de Mauritanie, d’Afrique du Nord et d’Égypte dont il partage les principales caractéristiques morphologiques (trois rangées d’écailles aux doigts, quatre supraoculaires, écailles des flancs beaucoup plus petites que les écailles médio-dorsales qui sont larges et fortement carénées, quatrième et cinquième supralabiales en contact avec la sous-oculaire), mais caractérisé par sa petite taille (longueur museau-cloaque des adultes comprise entre 50 et 63 mm) et une coloration différente des juvéniles et des femelles qui ne présentent pas de couleurs vives sur la queue” [TRAPÉ et al. 2012].

Diagnosis (khattensis): “Diagnose : lacertidé de l’ouest de la Mauritanie, présentant les principales caractéristiques des espèces et sous-espèces du complexe Acanthodactylus boskianus (trois rangées d’écailles aux doigts, quatre supraoculaires, écailles des flancs beaucoup plus petites que les écailles médio-dorsales, quatrième et cinquième supralabiales en contact avec la sous-oculaire), mais génétiquement distinct des populations de ce complexe d’Égypte, d’Asie, d’Afrique du Nord et des autres régions d’Afrique occidentale. Il est caractérisé par sa grande taille (longueur museau-cloaque des adultes comprise entre 70 et 82 mm), son petit nombre de rangées de dorsales (28-32), la présence de 10 rangées de ventrales et sa coloration particulière.” [TRAPÉ et al. 2012].

Type species: Lacerta boskiana DAUDIN 1802: 188 is the type species of the genus Acanthodactylus FITZINGER in WIEGMANN 1834.

Diagnosis (genus): Occipital absent. Fingers with three or four series of scales. Flat ventrals. Collar present. Toes with more or less developed pectination. Femoral pores present. Parietal foramen present [SALVADOR 1982: 8]. 
EtymologyEtymology (khattensis): “en référence au nom local des petits oueds encombrés de végétation où ce lézard abonde dans la région d’Akjoujt.”
