TypesHolotype: AM R116984 
CommentSynonymy: Witten (1994) erroneously considered the holotype as lost and nominated as neotype a QM specimen of Pogona vitticeps, leading him to redescribe P. henrylawsoni as a new species, Pogona brevis, now a junior synonym of P. henrylawsoni. Not listed by BARTS & WILMS (1997). Amphibolurus rankini appears to be a name circulating among herpetoculturists before it was published anywhere; it was based on the intention of Richard Wells to be published eventually. However, the species was later described as P. henrylawsoni with “rankini” left as a nomen nudum although it is possible that pictures of this species have been published under that name before 1984 (R. Wellington, pers. comm., 28 Jan 2013).

Size: Max. SVL: 15 cm, max. total length: 30 cm. (this is the smallest member of the genus Pogona).

Hybridization: P. henrylawsoni and P. nullarbor hybridize (MÜLLER 2010). P. henrylawsoni als hybridizes with P. vitticeps (MÜLLER 2002).
