An inordinate fondness for systematics
Lacertidae, somewhere within the Lacerta group of genera.
Dang, can't you give us a close-up of the head...? I think I agree with Gunnar that's it's a lacertid but it could be a skink, could'nt it? Time for me to go home and sulk about my total ignorance...
My first thought was skink also :)
