Lacerta lepida is a lizard species that occurs throughout the Iberian Peninsula. Detailed phylogeographic analysis of the species using mitochondrial DNA and nuclear sequence data revealed a history of population fragmentation and diversification in allopatry. Diversification within the species was estimated to have started in the Miocene probably related to geological events of the region, nevertheless a strong influence of Pleistocene climatic oscillations were also detected. Several glacial refugia and demographic range expansions after diversification in allopatry were detected leading to the establishment of several secondary contact zones. Detailed analysis of two secondary contact zones within the species was carried out.
