Parvoscincus beyeri

Lalo Dwarf Forest Skink

Lalo-Zwergwaldskink

Lalo-dværgskovskink

1922 Sphenomorphus beyeri Taylor
Parvoscincus beyeri Linkem, Diesmos & Brown 2011

Remarks: Previously confused with boyingi, hadros, and igorotorum (Brown, Linkem, Diesmos, Balete, Duya & Ferner 2010). A record from Mindanao (Relox, Leano & Ates-Camino 2011) is regarded herein as erroneous, following Supsup, Guinto, Redoblado & Gomez (2017).
Distribution: Philippines (Luzon).


Parvoscincus boyingi

Zambales Dwarf Forest Skink, (Boying’s Zambales Mountain Skink)

Zambales-Zwergwaldskink

Parvoscincus decipiens

Black-sided Dwarf Forest Skink, (Black-sided Sphenomorphus)

Schwarzseitiger Zwergwaldskink

1894 Lygosoma decipiens Boulenger
Sphenomorphus decipiens Taylor 1922

1915 Sphenomorphus curtirostris Taylor (Brown & Alcala 1980; Linkem & Brown 2013)

Remarks: Status of moellendorffi (the Tablas population) and curtirostris (the Mindanao population) is uncertain. The former is probably a separate species, the latter is either a synonym of kitangladensis or a separate species, but both are retained as synonyms of decipiens, pending further studies (Linkem & Brown 2013). These authors did not comment on the presence of decipiens in Catanduanes and in Sibuyan.
