Summary Seventeen linear measurements (13 from the skull and 4 from the mandible) were taken on 46 skulls of adult H. cristata , 24 of which originated from the Italian peninsula, 11 from North Africa, and 11 from Sicily. Based on the results from a PCA analysis, Italian H. cristata appeared on average to be grouped quite apart from conspecifics from Sicily and Africa, which were in contrast rather mixed.
