Thank you Bruce Edley for confirming the id of this species for us
General Species Information:
Found in the Murray Mallee SA, Riverland and possibly elsewhere
One of these was found on an expedition North of here, with a team of people helping with id's.
It was ~75mm SVL
Notice the eye's pupil is more square/diamond shaped rather than perfectly round.
With the eye-lid it'd be easily confused with the more southern located White's Skink (Liopholis whitii). 5 fingers & 5 toes.
