DistributionAustralia (New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Victoria)

Type locality: Kangaroo Is.; original description cites "Australia", designation by Rawlinson “in preparation” fide COGGER 1983 [lectotype]. Map legend:
TDWG region - Region according to the TDWG standard, not a precise distribution map.

NOTE: TDWG regions are generated automatically from the text in the distribution field and not in every cases it works well. We are working on it.
 
Reproductionoviparous. QUALLS & SHINE (1998) showed that some traits in L. guichenoti (e.g. incubation period, tail length, inter-limb length, body shape, locomotor performance) were strongly influenced by the thermal regime experienced by the embryo during incubation. 
TypesLectotype: MNHN Paris (= MNHP) 5264
Syntypes: MNHP 3014 (New Zealand), from New Zealand and Tas. (original description cites New Zealand and Australia) [Lygosoma duperreyii] 
CommentSMITH 1937 gave GRAY as author for guichenoti.

Synonymy: Lygosoma (Mocoa) guttulatum PETERS 1881 was erroneously listed as synonym of Pseudemoia entrecasteauxii by COGGER 1983. Kaiser et al. 2013 considered the generic names Adrasteia Wells 2002, Allengreerus Hoser 2009, Helioscincus Wells 2002, Ndurascincus Wells 2002 invalid and rejected their use instead of Lampropholis.

Type Species: Lygosoma Guichenoti is the type species of the genus Lampropholis FITZINGER 1843.
