DistributionTurkey (SW Anatolian Peninsula south to the Büyük Menderes River, east to Çobanisa/Isparta), Greece (Rhodes, Symi, Kasos)

Type locality: “Hafenmauer der Stadt Rhodos, Insel Rhodos”  
Reproduction 
TypesHolotype: SMF 55228, male 
Diagnosis 
CommentSynonymy: after BELLATI et al. 2014. The name Anatololacerta oertzeni quandttaylori was used by BELLATI et al. 2014 although these authors concluded that it shouldd be included in Anatololacerta pelasgiana.

The Zoological Record doesn’t list Lacerta oertzeni WERNER, 1904 (at least not in the years of or around 1904). See BAUER & GÜNTHER 1995 for more details on the types. The status of Lacerta danfordi pentanisiensis WETTSTEIN 1964 is still unclear but likely belongs to A. pelasgiana (BELLATI et al. 2014).
