DiagnosisDiagnosis. Tropiocolotes naybandensis sp. nov. differs from T. tripolitanus, T. scorteccii, T. algericus, T. somalicus, T. occidentalis and T. bisharicus by possessing smooth or weakly keeled dorsal scales and smooth ventral scales (versus strongly keeled scales in T. tripolitanus, T. scorteccii, T. algericus, T. somalicus, T. occidentalis and T. bisharicus). It differs from T. nattereri, by possessing clearly tricarinated subdigital scales (versus smooth subdigital scales).
It is distinguised from T. wolfgangboehmei by having three pairs of postmental scales (two pairs in T. wolfgangboehmei) and by a completely different coloration and pattern (see Fig. 7 versusversus Fig. 9). It is differentiated from T. nubicus by having slightly keeled scales on tail and flanks (versus smooth scales in T. nubicus) and larger gular scales (26-29 versus 31-38 in T. nubicus). T. naybandensis differs from T. steudneri by possessing larger gular scales (26-29 versus 30-42 in T. steudneri) and by differences in pattern (see Fig. 7 versus Fig. 10 in KRAUSE et al. 2013).
