General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA), the Riverland and elsewhere
~35mm snout to vent length. 4 fingers and 5 toes. Like most skinks, they are variable. The one we found was dark coppery brown above with a dark stripe down each side and pale underneath. The ears opening are minute, hence appears to be earless.
