I cannot id this very young skink - it most likely is L. guichenoti but may be P. entrecasteauxii. Note that Carlia is found in the lowland areas of the ACT. WillO

i agree, juveniles are difficult even in the hand. This individual appears to have five fingers so can't be Carlia who all have four.

When I saw it I thought it was a delicate skink. Let's go with that.

Oh I got the localisty wrong. I thought it was a Namadgi Location (Gibraltar Creek). Rule out the Pseudemoia possibility but yes might be one of the two Lampropholis. WillO.

The photo of the Skink was at Gibraltar Falls near the car park lawned area.The front hands only have four fingers, the mark under the left of the right hand is on the wood not an extra finger.
Hope this helps.

These skinks can lose digits with gay abandon so the presence of only four digits without a closer look can be misleading. Notwithstanding that, this animal looks more like delicata than Carlia tetradactyla. Juveniles can be hard to id but I still feel the same as Will at this stage. I'm not sure I have ever seen a juvenile Carlia so I am prepared to stand corrected if anyone has more to add on this.

I have seen a couple of juvenile Carlia tetradactyla and from memory they have more markings and spots on their back. See also photo at http://hvbackyard.blogspot.com.au/2007/04/17-cute-little-skinks.html (scroll down to third photo).
The smallest fingers on little skinks can be hard to see if they are partially out of sight. I still think that this could be either L. guichenoti or delicata. However Geoff states that he saw it at the time it was photographed and thought it was L. delicata.
