seudopus apodus levantinus • Morphological and Genetic Differentiation in the Anguid Lizard Pseudopus apodus (Anguidae) supports the Existence of An Endemic Subspecies in the Levant

The new subspecies is genetically highly diverse, and it forms a sister lineage to Pseudopus from the remaining parts of the range according to mtDNA. It is the largest-bodied of the three subspecies, but occupies the smallest range. Leer más.
