Carlia munda — Shaded-litter Rainbow Skink
Also known as:
White-lipped Rainbow Skink
I am pretty sure that this lizard is a breeding male Carlia munda, based in part on the pronounced white lip, and on photos like the ones here and here. But I havent entirely convinced myself that its not a breeding male of the very similar Carlia rufilatus. If you know more, please send me email.
Ive written up an account of this three-week trip to Australia here.
