DistributionTurkey, Greece (Cyprus), Syria, Lebanon ?

anatolicus: Turkey (Anatolia),Type locality: “Abanoz-Almdorf (1400 m), 50 km N Anamur (Prov. Içel = Mersin), Türkei”  
Reproductionoviparous 
TypesHolotype: ZDEU 8011993-10, adult male
Holotype: ZSM 116/1996, male; Paratypes in ZFMK, ZSM, NMW and ZDEU [anatolicus] 
DiagnosisDiagnostic traits of anatolicus: the relatively large ear opening, the four supralabials from suboccular to rostral, and relative short head–neck length.

Diagnosis (budaki anatolicus): Vier vordere Supra-labialia (90%). KRL insbesondere beim Weibchen gering (Mittel/Maximum: 36/ 39,5 mm); Relation KHL/KRL vergleichsweise niedrig (Mittel/Maximum: 35,5/38). Bauch beim Männchen weißlich (Schmidtler 1997: 55).

Diagnosis (budaki): Polytypische Art aus der Verwandtschaft von A. kitaibelii, A. chernovi und A. rueppellii. Augenregion wie bei diesen. Tympanalöffnung groß (0,4-0,5 mm im Mittel). 2. Supraciliare schmal und lang (B/L 20-30% im Mittel). Interparietale schmäler als lang (80-90% im Mittel). Rumpfschuppen meist 20 (seltener 18 oder 19). Ventraliazahlen gering (Männchen bis 41, Weibchen bis 46). Dorsalia allenfalls fein gepunktet. Rücken im Leben oft mit lebhaftem Goldglanz. Ventralia nicht dunkel gerandet. Bauch beim Männchen regional oft gelblich bis hellorange (Schmidtler 1997: 52).

Diagnosis (budaki budaki): Drei vordere Supralabialia; KRL insbesondere beim Weibchen groß (Mittel/Maximum: 42/47 mm). Relation KB/KHL vergleichsweise hoch (Mittel/ Maximum 37/40). Bauch beim Männchen meist gelblich bis hellorange (Schmidtler 1997: 53). 
CommentA. kitaibelii appears paraphyletic with respect to A.budaki and A.chernovi (Poulakakis et al. 2005). 
EtymologyNamed after Dr. Abidin Budak (b. 1943), a herpetologist and (since 1990) a Professor at the Ege University Zoology Department, Izmir, Turkey.
