Giulia Tessa, Ramona Viterbi, Bruno Bassano


Distribution records are the basis for conservation planning and species conservation assessments. New locality and elevation records are reported for the 4 colubrid snakes (Coronella austriaca, Hierophis viridiflavus, Natrix tessellata and Natrix natrix) present in the Gran Paradiso National Park and surrounding areas as established by direct sightings. These new records represent important additions to the knowledge of the species and more generally for the alpine region, at national and international level.
