LAND MULLET Bellatorias (was Egernia) major
The Land Mullet Bellatorias major is a common species and is regarded as the largest species of skink in Australia

Note that Major Skinks were once called Egernia major, however it was later discovered that the type specimen of Egernia major was actually a Land Mullet so the Major Skinks name was changed to Egernia frerei and the Land Mullet had its name changed from Egernia bungana to Egernia major!

Later both species were moved from the Egernia Genus to the Bellatorias Genus.
