Reproductionoviparous 
TypesHolotype: WAM R51675 
CommentDiagnosis: A member of the A. decresii species-group (Houston, 1978), very like A. ornatus (Gray) but smaller, with head and body less strongly depressed, and having much less dark pigmentation (e.g. males lacking black blotches on back and black bands on proximal third of tail). Distinguishable from A. caudicinctus (Gunther), with which it is sympatric, by the depressed head, body and tail, much weaker nuchal crest, stronger spines in vicinity of ear aperture and on side of neck, and in males the lack of a black pectoral patch and much wider and less numerous caudal bands.
