Striped Litter Skink (Sphenomorphus cherriei)
This was a very small little leaf-litter denizen. They were probably very common but hard to notice, and hard to catch once noticed. I think it was Alejandro Solorzano of the Costa Rica National Serpentarium who caught this one (but it might have been one of the local guides). We photographed it later that day before releasing it.

This lizard was photographed on a herping trip with GreenTracks. Here is a complete list of the species we found on this GreenTracks trip.
