Well it's Pseudemoia as it has divided frontoparietals, probably entrecasteauxii but I hope Will can improve on that.

Yes I agree with John - it is P. entrecasteauxii. Without the view of the frontoparietals could have also been Acritoscincus duperreyi so lucky you have that view that shows the top of the head (head shields). It is not one of the other Pseudemoia species so we can accept the record as P. entrecasteauxii.
