DistributionPakistan, India (Gujarat, Assam, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Mizoram, Tripura, Nagaland, Punjab etc.), Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Myanmar (= Burma), Thailand (incl. Pathum Thani), Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam (Thanh Hoa etc.), N West Malaysia

malcolmi: Thailand; Type locality: Phu Phak Khi Nak (mt.), near Ban Nam Yen (subvillage), Kok Sathon (village), Dan Sai (district), Loei (province), Thailand.

postnasalis: Thailand; Type locality: From Phu Lorn Lo (mt.), 2100m elevation, Kok Sathon (village), Dan Sai (district), Loei (province), Thailand.

quadrifasciata: Thailand; Type locality: Phu Nam Lang (mt.),
1780 m. elevation, Ban Khok (subvillage), Na Phung (village), Dan Sai (district), Loei (province), Thailand.

Type locality: restricted to Rangpur, Bengal [at present in Bangladesh] by Taylor and Elbel, 1958  
TypesHolotype: ZSI 2344. the holotype of Eutropis macularia is now fragmented and faded, thus, it is impossible to examine its coloration and other important characters (vide Batuwita, 2016; Fig. 6).
Holotype: KU (= KUMNH) 40110 [postnasalis]
Holotype: FMNH, originally EHT-HMS 31802 [quadrifasciata]
Holotype: FMNH 178216, originally EHT-HMS 31774 [malcolmi] 
DiagnosisDiagnosis (quadrifasciata): Four dark dotted dorsal lines on back; scales on chin and throat with brown borders; most scales of sides each with a lighter area; an axillary pocket; anterior loreal usually divided; area of specialized "chigger" scales on leg above ankle [from TAYLOR & ELBEL 1958].

Diagnosis (postnasalis): A postnasal present; a specialized group of scales on leg above ankle forming a chigger-mite refuge; no axillary "chigger pocket." A dark lateral band present bordered below by a light line; a few scales on rump and those on lower lateral rows with small blackish spots some of which may have a tiny cream spot in center; one or two presuboculars [from TAYLOR & ELBEL 1958].

Diagnosis (malcolmi): No trace of an axillary pit, no postnasal, but posterior part of nasal somewhat narrowed; frontal shorter than combined parietal but equal or a little greater than its distance from snout tip, wider than the frontonasal, but touching it; second loreal rela- tively short, much less than twice as wide as first loreal; a chigger mite refuge on the lower part of leg; leg reaches to elbow when adpressed; first chinshields separated mesially; transverse rows of scales, parietal to above vent, 38; from mental to vent, 47; 30 scale- rows about body [from TAYLOR & ELBEL 1958].

Morphological characters (determination after Smith 1935, Taylor 1963). Males: SVL 55.6–61.7 mm (mean ± SD 58.3 ± 2.4 mm, n = 5), TaL 95.4 mm (n = 1); females: SVL 55.4–59.6 mm (mean ± SD 57.5 ± 1.7 mm, n = 4), TaL 80.5–85.7 mm (mean ± SD 83.6 ± 2.7 mm, n = 3). For further measurements and proportions see Table 1. (from Pham et al. 2015)

Head longer than wide; rostral wider than high; supranasals present, separated from each other; prefrontals separated by frontal; parietals separated by interparietal; enlarged nuchal scales in one pair; loreals 2; supraciliaries 5 or 6; supraoculars 4, followed by 2 postsupraoculars; primary temporals 3, secondary temporals 3, keeled; supralabials 7, the fifth below the eye; external ear openings with small projecting lobules anteriorly, tympanum deeply sunk; mental wider than long; infralabials 7; postmental undivided; midbody scales in 30 rows; dorsal scales with 5– 7 obtuse keels, slightly larger than lateral scales; paravertebral scales 36–39; ventrals in 43–47 transverse rows, smooth; precloacals 2, enlarged; medial subcaudals not widened; limbs strong, pentadactyl; fingers and toes meeting when adpressed; subdigital lamellae smooth, 10 or 11 under fourth finger and 13–16 under fourth toe. (from Pham et al. 2015)

Coloration in alcohol. Dorsal surface brown, with or without small black spots; white stripe present on upper lip, extending backwards to shoulder; a dorsolateral light line extending from eye to midway on body; flank dark brown from behind the eye to hind limb, with white spots; neck and throat reddish in males and cream in females; venter and underside of tail cream. For coloration in life see Fig. 2. (from Pham et al. 2015)
CommentSynonymy partly after SMITH 1935. Mabuya allapallensis has been treated as a synonym of Mabuya macularis (Blyth, 1853) by Smith (1935). Sharma (1976) and Das (1991) considered it valid but Mirza et al. (2010) synonymized it again with E. macularia. Eutropis madaraszi has been removed from the synonymy of E. macularia. All 3 subspecies are of doubtful but unresolved taxonomic status (Ota et al. 2001, Pauwels & David 2005), hence we consider them as synonyms of macularia for the time being. Euprepes brevis GÜNTHER 1875 and Lygosoma dawsoni ANNANDALE 1909 have been removed from the synonymy of E. macularia by Ganesh et al. 2021 and are now considered as valid species.

Karyotype: Mabuya macularia consists of karyologically different populations. Specimens from NW Thailand had 2n = 38 chromosomes while specimens from SW Thailand invariably had 2n = 34 chromosomes (Ota et al. 2001).

Distribution: not in Sri Lanka, since Batuwita 2016 has assigned all Sri Lankan populations to E. greeri, austini, and madaraszi. 
EtymologyMabuya allapallensis was named after its type locality.
