Résumé
Libyan herpetology weakened after mid-1930, and has only recently begun strengthening again. Because of this, there are no large scale references specific to Libya that allow researchers to quickly browse the species present and their distribution across the country. For this purpose, I compiled 3059 records for the 66 species of Libyan reptiles, from both literature and museum collections. These records were from 44 museum collections, and 59 different publications and represent 425 different localities across the country. I observed five major distribution patterns : Mediterranean, Saharan, Mediterranean and oases, Mediterranean east of the gulf of Sirt, Mediterranean west of the gulf of Sirt, and the Sabha corridor. There are species that combine these patterns as well. Oases contain a diverse set of species, representing a bulk of the diversity present. The majority of the biodiversity present in Libya is in the northeastern corner, east of the Gulf of Sirt.
