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 both now called Ctenotus taeniatus

Note that this species Ctenotus taeniatus is often called a "Ribbon Ctenotus"which is not a suitable name for this species.

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