Hi! Does anyone have a really good pic of P. taurica that they could post? I want to ascertain that's really what I have. With all the regional variation, can't just go by the illustration in my field guide. The male is a bronze brown with 2 distinct pencil-thin white dorso-lateral lines, small dark brown rod-shaped spots between those lines, a creamy white belly, and a 0.5 cm bright green dorsal stripe which fades into brown at his hips. Head is brown, with faint green at lips. Female is paler version, with smaller head, a suffusion of faint green under her basic body color, a row of bluish scales at the white belly-brown back interface, and her dorsal stripe is reduced to a green sliver just at her shoulders.

Unfortunately, I lack a camera with close-up capabilities

Any help is really appreciated!!
