basoglui: Turkey

Type locality: restricted to “Umgebung von Tor (Sinai)” by MERTENS 1922. Map legend:
TDWG region - Region according to the TDWG standard, not a precise distribution map.

NOTE: TDWG regions are generated automatically from the text in the distribution field and not in every cases it works well. We are working on it.
 
TypesLectotype SMF 8180, male (designated by Mertens, 1967:60) 
CommentNot listed by Engelmann et al. (1993). The name Cyrtopodion is neuter, hence the specific epithet has to be scabrum (fide CROTHER 2000).

Type species: Stenodactylus scaber HEYDEN 1827 is the type species of the genus Cyrtopodion FITZINGER 1843.

Diagnosis (= definition of genus): Digits clawed, slender, distal two or three phalanges make an angle with the proximal portion of the digits; a single series of smooth transverse subdigital lamellae; end of digit weakly or not at all laterally compressed; generally three or more rows of lateral scales on digits; no fringes or denticulations on lateral digital scales; longitudinal concavity in frontal region of head, as a rule, absent or weakly developed; usually not more than 30 scales between centers of eyes; pupil vertical with lobed anterior and posterior margins; usually two or three pairs of postmental shields, the first pair usually in contact behind the mental; males with preanal and/or femoral pores; segmentation of tail pronounced [from LEVITON et al. 1992].
