||The area of the Mainalo mountain range presents a great variability of habitats offering shelter to many Greek endemic plant taxa. However, the most important formations are, that of the forest ecosystems with, Abies cephalonica and Pinus nigra subsp. Pallasiana, which are the thickest and best represented in Peloponnisos. Several remarkable amphibians, reptiles and mammals have been recorded in this site. Testudo marginata's range is restricted to the Greek mainland (except Thraki and most of Macedonia) and a small part of southern Albania. This tortoise is also introduced to Sardinia and possibly to other Mediterranean islands and coastal localities. Among the Other Important taxa of this site (see section 3.3), the bat Nyctalus leisleri is a threatened species (placed in the category "Endangered" according to the Greek Red Data Book), while the lacertid lizards Lacerta graeca, Podarcis peloponnesiaca, are Greek endemics restricted to Peloponnisos. Nearly all taxa of the section are protected by the Bern Convention so are marked with the C motivation. Most of these taxa are also protected by Greek legislation (Presidential Decree 67/1981) and are therefore allocated the D motivation; the exceptions to this case are the lizard Ablepharus kitaibelii, the snake Vipera ammodytes, the hare Lepus europaeus, the marten Martes foina, and the badger Meles meles. The anuran amphibians Bufo viridis, Hyla arborea and Pelobates syriacus, and the lizards Ablepharus kitaibelii and Cyrtodactylus kotschyi, are also recorded by the CORINE-Biotopes Project, whereas the lizard Podarcis taurica ionica, the snake Coluber gemonensis, the dormouse Glis g. pindicus, the vole Microtus thomasi, and the wood mouse Apodemus mystacinus epimelas, are Balkan endemics. The toad Pelobates syriacus is very rare in Peloponnisos (this site is the only known area for this taxon), the lizard Cyrtodactylus kotschyi bibroni has a patchy distribution pattern in Greece, and the hare is very rare because of intensive hunting. All these peculiarities constitute additional reasons for giving the D motivation to the taxa concerned. The avifauna of Mt. Mainalo is typical of the Greek mountainous areas covered partly by coniferous forests. Its most remarkable elements are some diurnal birds of prey such as Accipiter gentilis, A. nisus, B. buteo, Falco tinnunculus and F. peregrinus (the last species is mentioned in the Greek Red Data Book as an "Insufficiently Known taxon). The occurrence of the Golden Eagle Aquila chrysaetos is now dubious. The invertebrate species listed in section 3.3 with motivation C are protected by the Bern Convention.The invertebrate species listed in sections 3.3 with motivation D are protected by the Greek Presidential Decree 67/1981. Plebejus sephirus, Anthocharis damone and Spialia phlomidis are also included in the IUCN Red List.Pieris ergane is also included in the list of "Threatened Rhopalocera (butterflies) of Europe".
