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

Type locality: near Shagali, North Armenia  
Reproductionoviparous; parthenogenetic "species". 
TypesHolotype: AFAN (was: 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. 
EtymologyNamed after Sergei Konstantinovich Dahl, a Russian zoologist
