This sighting represents a range extension for this species, as the previous southern limit is Mumbulla S.F.

Author's notes

I thought it might be Eulamprus tenuis but happy to have an expert decide

Thanks Harrison!

No worries Doug, bit sceptical as to whether it was Eulamprus heatwolei or Eulamprus tympanum but from what I've seen tympanum have bars of black on their back and heatwolei (more common on south coast) have flecks rather than bars. Also the lateral line does not run past the tympanum, which again suggests Eulamprus tympanum.

Hi guys (Patrick particularly) - if you check out the ID photo for this species on ALCW, you'll find that we recorded one in Tura Beach a few years ago, a bit further south again. We haven't put it in as a sighting, but if you'll confirm our ID is correct Patrick, I will do so.

Hi Jackie. I've checked out the ID photo of the Tura Beach specimen and it's definitely a Bar-sided Forest-skink, now Concinnia tenuis (Skinner et al. 2013).
