|Etymology||Species is named in honor of Natalia Ananjeva, Zoological Institute, St. Petersburg (Russia) in recognition of her contribution to herpetological research of Agamidae and Phrynocephalus in particular. She helps a lot to all of the coauthors in their zoological carreers. Especially she helped the first author, to whom she proposed in 2005 to resolve the problem with persicus-horváthi complex, and that was a start point for his agamid studies.|
