For MM & SG:
Third & last Algarve lizard. Probably a Podarcis lizard of some sort but I would be glad for your ID on this one.
No interactions present.
The two other observations that this links to (as of April 2012) are not Podarcis hispanicus Type 2. These are the species of the Podarcis hispanicus complex which is retaining the original name. There are a couple of observations of Podarcis liolepis on iSpot, which is another former Podarcis hispanicus species.
I'm not up to speed with this split so wouldn't want to agree. Can you provide the reference to the work which split P. hispanicus?
The reference is:
Pinho, C., Harris, D.J. & Ferrand, N. (2008) Non-equilibrium estimates of gene flow inferred from nuclear genealogies suggest that Iberian and North African wall lizards (Podarcis spp.) are an assemblage of incipient species. BMC Evolutionary Biology, 8, 63.
I was too uncertain to attempt the ID, now I see that I was very wise not to! (For inf, I was considering P. vaucheri.)
Podarcis vaucheri is not too far off. It's one of the five species which Podarcis hispanicus was split into. It doesn't quite reach as far west as your observation, but not too far away.
