The present study provides the first records (Birlik neighbourhood and Devrek District in Zonguldak Province) of the Bulgarian bent-toed gecko Mediodactylus danilewskii from the western Black Sea coastal region of Turkey. Morphological data of specimens from Edirne (Vakif Village of Enez District) located in the Thrace part of Turkey are compared to those of specimens from the coast of the western Black Sea. The pholidolial and morphometric characters and colour-pattern features of the Zonguldak and Edirne specimens were found to be similar to those of M. danilewskii reported in the literature.
