Other common names:
doriae: Doria's Ground Skink
Remarks: Denzer & Manthey (1991) suggested that doriae might be a valid species. Although reported from India (e.g., Das 1997), there are no confirmed records from the country (Venugopal 2010). Presence in Indonesia, as reported by Richman & Böhm (2010), is regarded as erroneous, since no other works seem to support this.
Distribution: Malaysia (West Malaysia [incl. Penang Island]), Myanmar, Thailand.
