DistributionN Armenia (Mountainland), S Republic of Georgia, Ukraine

Type locality: near Shagali, North Armenia  
Reproductionoviparous; parthenogenetic "species". 
TypesHolotype: ZIA (Zoological Institute of the Armenian SSR) 892, female 
Diagnosis 
CommentPetrosyan et al. (2003) show that the populations of D. dahli examined have genetically heterogeneous structure (at the level of between-population differences) whereas the populations of D. armeniaca have genetically homogeneous structure characteristic of one clone.

Darevskia dahli emerged as a result of interspecific hybridization of the bisexual species D. portschinskii and D. mixta.
