CommentLoveridge (1948), without examining the types, considered this species synonymous with what he regarded as Lygosoma (Sphenomorphus) variegatum jobiense Meyer (Loveridge’s material is now assigned to Sphenomorphus simus; he applied the name jobiense to the wrong taxon). However, until the type material is more adequately described, BAUER et al. (2003) prefer to maintain Vogt’s species as distinct and other authors followed that.
