Common Names 
SynonymLygosoma malaisei RENDAHL 1937
Sphenomorphus malaisei — SHEA 2017 (pers. comm.) 

Type locality: “Birma” (unspecified locality)  
TypesHolotype: NRM 3962 
CommentGlenn Shea (pers. comm., 16 Apr 2017) has examined the holotype, in which “the lower eyelid (though somewhat damaged) is certainly scaly, lacking a window, the median preanals are enlarged and laterally overlap the lateral preanals, and there are no supranasals, so that would make it (on current taxonomy) a Sphenomorphus”.

Abundance: only known from the type specimen (Meiri et al. 2017).
