Eyrean Ctenotus (Ctenotus taeniatus)

Ctenotus brooksi taeniatus was the subspecies from the Lake Torrens basin
as well as
Ctenotus brooksi aranda which was the subspecies from the Simpson desert, south to Lake Eyre basin
and
Ctenotus brooksi iridis which was the subspecies from Western Victoria and adjacent parts of South Australia are now all classed as the Eyrean Ctenotus (Ctenotus taeniatus)

Note that the Eyrean Ctenotus (Ctenotus taeniatus) is often called a "Ribbon Ctenotus"which is not a suitable name for that species.

Note that its scientific name Ctenotus taeniatus should not be confused with that of the Copper-tailed Skink (Ctenotus taeniolatus)
