A small village situated around 4.5 km W of the town of Lavrion. The village was called Kamareza until the 1980s (similar names have been used in English to translate the Greek name). In ancient Greece, the settlement was called "Maroneia" and centre of an important mining area.
A mineral museum was opened here in 2006.

Several mines are located in or around the village, all together often called "Kamareza mines". The most important (but not the only ones) are the Serpieri, Jean Baptiste, Hilarion and Christiana mines. All these mines consist of many interconnected ancient tunnels, often connected with tunnels from different mines, which can make accurate locality designation difficult. Most specimens from "Lavrion" are actually from one of these mines.

This list is generated automatically by merging the lists for the specific localities in and around the village. Where species are type locality species at a specific locality, this "TL" designation is automatically carried over into the generic checklist here. It should be understood that it is the specific localities which are the type localities for these species - NOT the town in general.

NOTE: For references, see sublocality 'Kamariza mines (Kamareza mines)'.
