SCHNEIDER'S SKINK (EUMECES SCHNEIDERI (DAUDIN, 1802)) AS A NEW SPECIES FOR THE FAUNA OF KAZAKHSTAN

Abstract

In June 2017 on the territory of the Southern Kazakhstan region, on the right bank of the Syrdariya River, in the vicinities of the Darbaza mountain, under a nest of the long-legged buzzard (Buteo rufinus) the remains of 5 dead individuals of Schneider's skink (Eumeces schneideri) were found. This finding is located 110 km north-west from the nearest known habitation place of Schneider's skink on the Chatkal Range and allows us to include it into the herpetofauna list of Kazakhstan, and also to considerably expand our representations of its propagation north.
