A good record - not as common as the other two Ctenotus species in the ACT region.

Hi WillO, thanks for the ID, that’s great news. I was going to suggest C.orientalis but I wasn’t certain and I saw it was also probably the least common option.

Those white spots in the two black dorsal stipes is the diagnostic feature, great record.
