Among lizards (Reptilia, Sqamata, Sauria/Lacertia) skinks are still insufficiently studied and their taxonomy and identification is many times controversial. Earlier, the old genus Mabuya was less studied and later it was split into three distinct genera. It is highly cryptic, shy and endangered forest and garden dwelling skink that is not easily seen. Present paper describes this particular skink from Aravalli foothills, near Bundi, Rajasthan for the first time.
