Delicate skinks can be very variable in colour. They have two white stripes, one between their back and side and one much lower on their side. However, they may be hard to observe. The bottom white line is slightly visible on this one. Geoff R

This is just a darker, less -marked, colour pattern on P. entrecasteauxii. The lack of a fused (together) fronto-parietals helps to separate it from the Lampropholis genus - however that is tricky if you haven't examined the head shields (scales on head) .

So are we agreed it is entrecasteauxii? If so I am happy to confirm that.
