CommentSimilar species: Tropiocolotes naybandensis, T. steudneri, T. nattereri. Pictures of T. steudneri at http://herpetology.com/1phs31.html are in fact T. nattereri (Pierre Andre Crochet, pers. comm.).

Distribution: T. steudneri appears not to occur in Israel. All records up to know are based on misidentification of T. nattereri. SINDACO & JEREMČENKO 2008 (map 78) show one (dubious ?) record from Iran. 
EtymologyNamed after Hermann Steudner (1832-1863), naturalist and explorer.
