Hide details for Hierophis cypriensisHierophis cypriensis

A naturally rare species. Prefers the high mountain forests (500 - 1400m). Very few known localities. Also found near water (possibly due to higher prey availability). Persecution and logging are reported but not validated.
Priorities for the species are:
-Data on the species distribution. Find new localities as to better describe the species’ area of distribution. Through this, to clarify the species habitat preferences.
-Create suitable microhabitats in known localities.
-Through genetics, locate possible discontinuities of subpopulations.
