Throat color variation in the Balkan Podarcis-clade. Examples of some of the intra- and interspecific variation in throat color which is found in the Balkan Peninsula group of Podarcis shown on a pruned phylogenetic tree, whose topology was obtained from recent molecular studies [51,90]. Note especially the presence of intraspecific throat color polymorphisms in at least two species (P. gaigeae and P. mellisilensis) and the entire black throat of the island endemic P. milensis on Milos.
