TypesLectotype: MNHN (was MNHNP) 7102 (total length 131.5 mm), from Tasmania (original description cites Kangaroo Is., S. A.), designated by Rawlinson (cited as “in prep.” by COGGER 1983).
Syntypes: MNHP 7102 (Tasmania, two specimens), from New Zealand and Tasmania (original description cites New Zealand and Australia). 
CommentNomenclature of this species need revision.

Synonymy: partly after SHEA & SADLIER 1999.

Type species: Tiliqua duperreyi is also the type species of the genus Bassiana HUTCHINSON et al. 1990. Probably listed in error by FRANK & RAMUS 1995.
