Abstract

Ctenotus coggeri, a new species of scincid lizard from the Northern Territory, is described. It is endemic to sandstone woodland habitat on the Arnhem Land escarpment where it is sympatric with Ctenotus inornatus, the species with which it has previously been confused. Recognition of C. coggeri necessitated comparison with C. inornatus including the type specimen of Hinulia inornata Gray, the provenance of which is also reviewed.
