Herpetological survey of the Niassa Game Reserve, northern Mozambique – Part I: Reptiles




Significant contributions to the poorly known reptile fauna of northern Mozambique were made during a biodiversity survey of the Niassa Game Reserve (NGR), situated in northern Mozambique, bordering Tanzania. Of approximately 100 reptile species currently known from northern Mozambique, 57 species were recorded from the NGR. Important discoveries included: a new species of girdled lizard (Cordylus sp.) in rock cracks on the summit outcrops of Serra Mecula; the first national records of Melanoseps sp. and Lygodactylus angularis (both isolated populations are atypical and further studies are required to assess their taxonomic status).
