Type locality: between Ural River and Emba River, NW Kazakhstan [see Zhao and Adler, 1993:202 and Bauer and Günther, 1995:56 for additional comments]  
TypesNeotype: ZISP (ZIL) 13205 (designated by Szcerbak 1974:149);Holotype: unlocated fide I. Doronin (pers. comm., Nov. 2018)

DiagnosisDiagnosis: Three nasals, lower in contact with 2 or 3 anterior supralabials; 2 large supraoculars, first usually shorter than second, as long as, or shorter than its distance from second loreal; frontonasal single; subocular not bordering mouth; the 2 series of femoral pores separated by a space at least one-half the length of each; fifth toe with 2 complete rows of subdigital scales and one incomplete row of small lateral scales (Anderson 1999: 158, Fig. 94). 
CommentSubgenus: belongs to subgenus Ommateremias.

Synonymy partly after KHALIKOV & ANANJEVA (pers. comm.). Highly variable species (see patterns in CHIRIKOVA & KOLBINZEV 2003). Eremias arguta potanini is nested within arguta (ORLOVA et al. 2012).

Types: For comments on the types of this species (and the subspecies deserti) see BAUER & GÜNTHER 1995.

Type species: Lacerta variabilis PALLAS 1814 is the type species of the genus Eremias WIEGMANN 1834 (fide JEREMCENKO 1999). Szczerbak (1974) considered Eremias velox the type species of genus Eremias. For comments on the types of this species (and Lacerta vittata) see BAUER & GÜNTHER 1995.

Distribution: See map in SMID et al. 2014 for distribution in Iran.

Key: Masroor et al. 2020: 115 provide a key to the Pakistani species of Eremias.

Comparisons: Masroor et al. 2020: 119 provide of Eremias species.

Phylogenetics: see Khan et al. 2020 for a recent molecular phylogeny. This study also showed that the Aspidorhinus, Pareremias, and Rhabderemias subgenera are polyphyletic. 
EtymologyThe genus “Eremias is a Greek noun meaning solitary devotee, and is related to Eremia, signifying an isolated place or desert.” (Arnold et al. 1978; Mozaffari and Parham, 2007).
