... with head size. The modal number of presacral vertebrae is 23. There is no sexual dimorphism in either the number of postsacral vertebrae or the number of postsacral vertebrae with transverse processes. Hyperphalangy occurs in 3.2% of specimens. Gross variation in the sacral vertebrae occurs in 5.3...

... Range, Northern Territory. Additionally, we provide notes on sexual dimorphism, antipredator behaviour and shelter site use in this species. We discuss how some of this novel information may explain why this species is so rarely detected and suggests that this cryptic agamid may be much more common...
