Reproductionviviparous 
TypesNeotype: MZB 11912 (field number ENS 15037), adult male, SVL 104.0 mm, collected on 20 December 2013 by Irvan Sidik, Ahmad Muammar Kadafi, and Eric N. Smith, designated by Amarasinghe et al. 2018.
Holotype: SMF 22087; male, paratype: MZB [balinensis]
Holotype: SMF 55147, female, also given as MZB [tjendikianensis]
Syntypes: MNHN (composed of multiple species fide Amarasinghe et al. 2018) [sebae] 
DiagnosisDescription (genus): Medium-sized to large lizards with cylindrical bodies, strong, well developed limbs, the digits 5-5, and medium-sized tails. Cycloid scales underlaid by bony plates (osteodermes). Dorsals keeled. Dorsals and ventrals similar to each other; no distinct boundary between gulars and ventrals. Palatine bones in contact in the median; palatal notch separating the pterygoids, extending forwards to between the centres of the eyes. Pterygoid teeth present. Dorsal head scales mostly flat and subimbricate, with a pair of supranasals, and prefrontals and frontoparietals paired or fused. Most posterior supraocular contacted by the frontal is the second. Secondary temporals are separated by anteriorly encroaching tertiary temporal. Nostril pierced in a single nasal. Eyelids movable; lower eyelid predominately scaly, sometimes with undivided, semitransparent disc, bordered below directly by one (or more) supralabial(s). Pupil round. Ear opening relatively small, with tympanum recessed in moderately deep auditory meatus. Teeth relatively small, pleurodont; tongue wide, lanceolate, covered with irregularly shaped papillae, its tip feebly notched. Femoral pores absent. 26 presacral vertebrae. Reproduction either oviparous or viviparous (Mausfeld et al. 2002: 289).

Diagnosis (species): A combination of the following characters distinguishes Eutropis multifasciata from all other conge- ners: SVL 87.1–109.6 mm; three keels on dorsal scales; lower eyelid disc scaled; paravertebral scales 43–48; ventrals 53– 58; subdigital lamellae on Toe IV 16–19; midbody scale rows 32–34; dorsal surface of thigh smooth; scales on temporal region smooth; lateral surface of body with dark band. [Amarasinghe et al. 2018]

Comparisons: Eutropis multifasciata can be distin- guished from other congeners by having several distinctive characters (Table 3). Unlike E. multifasciata, with three keels on its dorsal scales, Eutropis dissimilis (Hallowell 1857) has two keels on its dorsal scales; E quadricarinata Boulenger 1887a has four keels on the dorsal scales; E. andamanensis (Smith 1935), E. carinata (Schneider 1801), E. gansi (Das 1991), E. madaraszi (Me ́hely 1897), E. multicarinata (Gray 1845), E. rugifera (Stoliczka 1870), and E. trivittata (Hardwicke and Gray 1827) have five dorsal scale keels; E. macularia (Blyth 1853) and E. tammanna Das, de Silva and Austin 2008, have six dorsal scale keels; E. austini Batuwita, 2016 has five to eight dorsal scale keels; and E englei (Taylor 1925) has seven to nine dorsal scale keels. Eutropis beddomei (Jerdon 1870) has 12–16 lamellae on the fourth toe, E. floweri (Taylor 1950) has 15–16 lamellae, and E. tytleri (Theobald 1868) has 28 lamellae (vs. 20–21 in E. multifasciata). Eutropis bibronii (Gray 1839), E. innotata (Blanford 1870), E. nagarjunensis (Sharma 1969), E. long- icaudata (Hallowell 1857), and E. quadratilobus (Bauer and Gu ̈nther1992)haveatransparentlowereyeliddisc(vs.scaly in E. multifasciata). Eutropis clivicola (Inger, Shaffer, Koshy and Bakde 1984) has 46 ventrals (vs. 65–70 in E. multi- fasciata). Eutropis allapallensis (Schmidt 1926) has fronto- parietals fused (vs. separate in E. multifasciata). Eutropis ashwamedhi (Sharma 1969), E. cumingi (Brown and Alcala 1980), E. greeri Batuwita 2016, E. indeprensa (Brown and Alcala 1980), and E. bontocensis (Taylor 1923) have prefrontals separated (vs. in contact in E. multifasciata). Eutropis chapaense (Bourret 1937) has no supranasal (vs. present in E. multifasciata). [Amarasinghe et al. 2018] 
CommentSynonymy partly after SMITH 1935 and MANTHEY 1983. Amarasinghe et al. 2018 synonymized tjendikianensis (and balinensis) with multifasciata.

Distribution: Reported from but not listed by DAS 1999 for the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Possibly in Bhutan (Lenz 2012).

Subspecies after MAUSFELD & SCHMITZ (2003). Mabuya multifasciata rudis has been elevated to species status.

Type Species: Euprepes Sebae DUMÉRIL & BIBRON 1839 is the type species of the genus Eutropis (fide DAS et al. 2008). 
EtymologyThe generic name comes from Greek eu-, meaning “good”, and the noun Τροπις, tropis, the keel of a ship. In combination, Eutropis refers to the keeled scales. The gender of the genus is feminine (Mausfeld et al. 2002: 289).
