Carlia crypta — no known English name
This species was split from Carlia rubrigularis in 2018. The species are nearly impossible to tell apart, but can for the most part be distinguished by range.
Several of these skinks were actively foraging in the leaf litter, but only this one decided to sit still and pose for me.
