The Sphenomorphus skink shown here is probably an undescribed species, though it is reported to show some similarity to Sphenomorphus annectans.

It was observed active amongst fallen rocks in an area of limestone karst, at an elevation of 750 metres in Southern Highlands Province (SHP).

Measuring approximately 6cm from snout to vent, it possesses a long tail of around twice body length. Its body colour is medium to dark brown, patterned with lighter blotches. The eye is large, and the eyelids are yellow-gold.

A comparable Sphenomorphus skink has also been reported from a higher elevation in the Moran area of SHP. See Mark O'Shea's blog for photo.
