Abb. 7: Funde von Gallotia simonyi auf Hierro. Danksagung. Ich danke Herrn Dr. W. Böhme und Herrn Dr. R. Hutterer für Anre- gung und Information; ferner Frau H. Köster für den Nachweis des Kiefers vom Nordo- sten der Insel; Herrn U. Hoyer für den Hinweis auf den Conchero in Guinea; Herrn A. Machado für die Abbildung 2; und nicht zuletzt meiner Frau und meinem Sohn für wertvolle Unterstützung im Gelände an Ort und Stelle. ? Summary The cliff of Fuga de Gorreta on Hierro is the last retreat of Gallotia simonyi. During a visit of the island in 1982 the author followed old and new hints at the present and former occurrence of the lizard. However, it was not possible to document the present existence of the species outside the Fuga de Gorreta. In addition caves and concheros of the Guanches were investigated with respect to skeletal material. Several remains of lizards were found, some dentalia indicating a considerable size of the lizards. The fin- dings also indicate that the lizards were eaten by the aboriginals. — Past and present records (with one exception) are restricted to regions of old basaltic rocks. — From this understanding I propose to favour the following regions for re-introduction programs of Gallotia simonyi, especially in the case of successful captive breeding: 1) Southern slope Bco Los Cardones, 2) Southern slope Risco de los Herrenos, 3) Southern slope Bco of Tinor, 4) Smaller Zalmor Rock, and 5) Southern slope Bahia de los Reyes.
