(?) Emoia species 2

 
 
 

Fig 1


Fig 2
 

Family : SCINCIDAE
Species : Emoia sp. ?
Size (snout to vent) : This specimen 3.0 cm
Size (total length) : This specimen 6.5 cm

The tiny skink shown here is tentatively identified as an Emoia sp, though identifying features are not discernible on these images. Its snout-vent length (SVL) is around 3 cm, and the tail appears to be slightly longer than the SVL.

It may be a juvenile of (?) Emoia species 1, as it was found in the same locale at an elevation of 1100 metres in the Kutubu area of Southern Highlands Province.

The skink was found in the interior of damp, lower montane forest, and was active at the base of a mossy tree trunk.

The head is a vibrant copper brown, and the dorsum and tail medium brown. Under flash photography the flank and legs have a bluish-grey reflectance or iridescence. The body scales appear to be strongly keeled.
