CommentChalcides bedriagai cobosi has been proposed as a replacement name for Chalcides bedriagai bedriagai Valverde, 1966 (non BOSC 1880). Valverde confused the different subspecies and created a "new subspecies" bedriagai, which is a homonym and had to be replaced by Valverde himself (in Salvador, 1998; M.A. Alonso-Zarazaga, pers. comm.). 
EtymologyNamed after Jacques von Bedriaga (1854-1906), Russian-born herpetologist.
