||The area is of great archaeological interest since it is combined with the antiquities of Ancient Korinthos. It is an area of natural beauty and hosts a number of Greek endemic plant taxa with the most important being Stachys virgata which is a very rare taxon also mentioned for Argolida but not found recently. This taxon should be given special treatment since it may be about to face extinction. The hills with a natural vegetation of Euphorbia dendroides are also of special interest. The tortoise Testudo marginata is the non-bird vertebrate species of this site listed in the Annex II of the 92/43/E.E.C. Directive. Moreover, it is also protected by the Bern Convention and Greek legislation. Testudo marginata is virtually a Greek taxon although it has been introduced to some Mediterranean islands. Besides this species, some Other Important amphibian and reptile taxa are known to occur in the area (section 3.3). The lizard Podarcis peloponnesiaca is Greek endemic (motivation B). All these taxa are protected by the Bern Convention therefore receiving motivation C while all but two (Ophisaurus apodus and Typhlops vermicularis) are protected by the Greek Presidential Decree 67/1981 as well, and these are allocated motivation D. The same motivation, D, is given to the following taxa for additional reasons: the toad Bufo viridis is mentioned in the handbook of the CORINE-Biotopes Project, the legless lizard Ophiomorus punctatissimus shows the westernmost part of its generally rather restricted area of distribution in Peloponnisos. In conclusion, the presently available data indicate that an interesting herpetofauna lives in this site, characterized by both endemic and geographically restricted taxa. 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. Pieris krueperi is also included in the IUCN Red List.
