Clonal variation in Lacerta armeniaca was investigated using allozyme electrophoresis and morphology. Among the 35 allozyme loci examined, three were variable, which divided L. armeniaca into four clones. One rare clone of L. armeniaca made up the majority of two populations. This contrasts to rare clones in other parthenogenetic Caucasian rock lizards which typically consist of only one or two individuals. Another rare clone, which showed a striking colouration difference, had different allelic composition at two loci. Although mutation is a possible explanation of the origin of the clonal variation, the alternative, multiple origin, is equally likely.
