Does anyone know what the distribution of the Sierra Nevada (or Grey) Ocellated Lizard Timon (lepidus) nevadensis might be? The name suggests it's unique to the Sierra Nevada but I gather it's also found in Almeria and Murcia. I understand that most authorities regard it as a well marked subspecies but it will be interesting what the new reptile FG makes of it ...

Hi John

Interesting question. I have found this link on the Waste magazine which would indicate that your thoughts on it's distribution are correct. Keep us posted on any other findings you get  :)
