West Coast Ctenotus (Ctenotus fallens)
Like Morethia lineoocellata, this was another skink lurking in the vegetation on the sand dunes on the beaches of Rottnest Island. Unlike that species, this one did was not obviously plentiful; my friend Don MacCubbin spotted this one, and we didn't see another.

Here is a complete list of the reptiles and frogs I saw on this trip to Western Australia.
