Blood-serum proteins of the Anatolian populations of Lacerta trilineata, L. media and L. pamphylica were studied comparatively by polyacrylamide disc electrophoresis. In order to obtain useful biochemical data for classification, differences between the electrophoreograms of the samples collected from different regions were distinguished qualitatively and quantitatively. These comparisons indicate that the Anatolian populations of L. trilineata should be subdivided into three species.
