We report on the reproductive characteristics of the lizard Lacerta lepida from two separate geographic regions in Spain. Lizards from central Spain (L. lepida lepida) mature at an age of 32-33 months. upon attaining a minimum size of 122-148 mm snout-vent-length. One clutch averaging 16.9 eggs is produced annually. We found an inverse correlation between egg and clutch size. Lizards from south-eastern Spain (L. lepida nevadensis) have smaller clutches (mean = 12.3 eggs), composed of relatively large eggs, and some individuals produce more than one clutch per year.
