Chernov's skink (Ablepharus chernovi ) is a species of skink native to Armenia, eastern Turkey, northern Syria, and the valleys of the Arax River, Zanga River, and Razden Rivers in the Caucasus. The species was included in Red Data Book of the USSR in 1984, and in that of Armenia 3 years later.[1]


This species is named in honour of Russian herpetologist Sergius Alexandrovich Chernov.[2]
