The extra small size, pronounced iridescence, and toe count all support an ID of Madascincus nanus. The Authority shows this species only considerably further north, and a very similar undescribed species referred to as Madascincus sp. "baeus" in the Andasibe area, but a more recent study merged the two.

Here is a list of all the reptiles and frogs I saw on this 2023 trip to Madagascar.
