Redescription of Ichthyosaura (Triturus) alpestris bakonyiensis from western Hungary

In a recent article we analysed the genetic diversity of the alpine newt in the Carpathian Basin. The results suggested that the western populations (Őrség and Bakony areas) represent a different mitochondrial lineage from the North Hungarian Mountain populations (Mátra, Bükk, Zemplén). We proposed these populations to be referred as Inchthyosaura alpestris bakonyiensis (Dely, 1964).
