Thank you David Muirhead for confirming the id of this species for us
General Species Information:
Found in the Murray Mallee SA, Riverland and possibly elsewhere
A few of these were found on an expedition North of here, with a team of people helping with id's.
Quite unique in their patterning, two specimens here show the difference between the original tail & a regrown one.
They have a very large "eyebrow" which generally looks yellow.
The three we found ranged between ~35mm to ~50mm SVL.
