Dmitry V. Skorinov, Valentina N. Kuranova, Leo J. Borkin, Spartak N. Litvinchuk

Abstract


In Siberia, Lissotriton vulgaris (Linnaeus, 1758) was recorded in nine provinces of Russia (81 localities). The northern border of geographic range passes the taiga zone in Tyumen’ and Tomsk Oblast’s, as well as Krasnoyarsk Kray. The southern range limit, as a rule, coincides with the border between the forest-steppe and steppe zones in Kurgan, Omsk, and Novosibirsk Oblast’s, as well as Altayskiy Kray. In Kazakhstan, the species was recorded in 3 isolated localities only. The conservation status of L. vulgaris in Siberia is discussed.
