|Comment||Synonymy: WELLS 2012: 134 lists this species as a synonym of Telchinoscincus (= Lerista) uniduo STORR 1984. This seems to be based on note 68 in Aplin & Smith 2001 who say “Following Aplin et al. (submitted) we treat Lerista maculosa Storr, 1991 as a probable junior synonym of L. uniduo 1984.” According to Glenn Shea (pers. comm., 19 Apr 2017) this paper never got published though.|
|Etymology||Latin for covered in spots.|
