Turkey, Giresun Province. 

Subspecies:

Darevskia derjugini ssp. 


Taxonomic notes:

Records from the province of Giresun extend the range of the species in Turkey by about 130 km to the west. Despite the geographical proximity to the ssp. barani, an examination of comparative material (BISCHOFF et al. 2005) did not yield any clear results. Until further clarification, we would like to refrain from assigning these animals to a subspecies.
