A collection of 1580 recent data records (1993-2012) of amphibians and reptiles from the Greek island of Samos was compiled. All records were mapped onto a grid of 1 km by 1 km, with 261 of the total 648 cells (40 %) of the island holding at least one observation. Subsequently, the distribution patterns and ecological observations were compared with data from other islands in the Aegean Basin. The discovery of the Coin-marked Snake Hemorrhois nummifer (Reus, 1834), published herein after, constitutes a new island record, setting the herpetofauna list to 28 confirmed species (4 amphibians, 24 reptiles).
