The dataset consists of points of registrations of mainly reptiles and amphibians (along with several mammalias, avian and insects' species) found within the territory of Rzhyshchiv city amalgamated territorieal community (CATC) (Kyiv region) during field research conducted in 2021. Several findings were collected from iNaturalist web site.

The registrations of reptiles and amphibians were made during fiend research in spring - autumn 2021. The animals were registered visually, following audial signals or found dead on the road. Also some local residents were interviewed in order to collect data on such mistakelessly interpreted species as European pond turtle - Emys orbicularis. Most of the sites investigated in 2020 were studied again in order to provid data for monitoring research. Some registrations of ampibians and reptiles were collected from open source for citizen science - iNaturalist web site.
