This specimen looks more like Eulamprus heatwolei imo due to black anterior margin of tympanum and heavy spotting on top of head. Also the high density of dorsal spotting tends to be more a feature of E. heatwolei in my experience. It also seems to have yellowish front feet and arm markings and a bright, pale yellow spot on the temporal region further suggesting E. heatwolei.

Yes agreed Bushman - this is also E. heatwolei. I will let Geoff know that we think it should be changed. There are likely to be a few more incorrectly id's amongst all of the tymp/heat photos . WillO
