Abstract

We report new localities of Dolichophis jugularis, Dolichophis schmidti and Eirenis (Pediophis) eiselti from Malazgirt (Mus province) in eastern Anatolia, Turkey. Dolichophis schmidti and Eirenis eiselti were recorded from Mug province for the first time while we present the easternmost locality of Dolichophis jugularis in Turkey with a considerable range extension.
