Tentatively identified as a type of Emoia, this small but attractive skink was found in the Kutubu area of Southern Highlands Province of PNG at an elevation of 1100 metres.

This skink measures around 5 cm from snout to vent (SVL), and its tail is around 1.5 times SVL length.

Its head, dorsal surface and tail are orange-brown, adorned with numerous darker flecks. The flanks are dark brown, adorned with occasional pale flecks. The limbs are slender and variously mottled with orange-brown or dark brown. The ear opening is marked by a pale yellow spot, and the eye is medium in size.

The specimen was found basking amongst plant debris adjacent to lower montane forest, in direct sunlight.
