Panaspis togoensis — Togo Lidless Skink
Also known as:
We saw a number of fairly generic small brown skinks in Ghana, most of which were apparently in the genus Trachylepis. But we also saw a few of these, which had a different feel to them, skulking about in the leaf litter or on the dirt road shortly after dark.
Dr. Adam Leaché identified this as "Panaspis sp.", and as far as I have been able to determine Panaspis togoensis is the only Panaspis species known from Ghana.
