Lerista miopus — no known English name
Lerista miopus was split off from Lerista lineopunctulata in 2017, so older references lump them together.
I found this fat and squirmy skink under a log on the grounds of the old Peron Homestead. It's nearly legless, having no front legs and tiny stumps for back legs.
Here is a complete list of the reptiles and frogs I saw on this trip to Western Australia.
