Saproscincus challengeri Challenger’s Shade Skink
Some other names for this species:
Challenger’s Shadeskink, Challenging Shade Skink, Orange-tailed Shade Skink
Hmm, Challenging Shade Skink or Challenger's Shade Skink; something tells me that one of these two names is the result of a misunderstanding. This skink was formerly included in the genus Lampropholis.
