The Dark-flecked Garden Sunskink Lampropholis delicata is a very common species in many areas of Australia and it is also found in Hawaii where it is known as a Rainbow Skink


See also the Common Grass Skink Lampropholis guichenoti which it is often confused with, as both species vary in patterning, and may occur in the same areas.
