We conducted field studies to monitor the population status of Marmaris Salamander (Lyciasalamandra flavimembris) in their known and possible distribution localities in Muğla province. The population status of and threats against the species were investigated and coordinates, elevations, and micro-climatic characteristics were recorded. We found out that the species is represented by at least 13 populations in the province of Muğla. Individuals prefer the areas that are more north-facing, with less sunlight and moist, and covered with vegetation where they can hide on the ground. The elevation ranged from 0 to 890 m and the mean temperature range was 8 to 18 °C during the peak of the active period. Population density is calculated as 5.6 individuals/hectare. In addition, we re-estimated the extent of occurrence and area of occupancy of Marmaris Salamanders that are 1115 km2 and 79 km2 respectively.
