25 -  Leiolopisma genus : 

Leiolopisma is a genus of skinks. Most species occur in the region of New Caledonia-New Zealand, and they are related to other genera from that general area, such as Emoia; these and others form the Eugongylus group. One living and two extinct taxa represent a clade endemic to the Mascarenes.(Austin & Arnold 2006)

An undescribed extinct taxon from Réunion was close to L. mauritiana (Austin & Arnold 2006). These two were formerly separated in Didosaurus. David Day (1979), in Vanished Species, described the Reunion skink as small and fast moving but completely unafraid of humans. 

Individuals would climb on observer's legs. Efforts to maintain the species in captivity proved futile. The Reunion skink was reported to be completely insectivorous.

-  Leiolopisma alazon (Lauan Ground Skink ) :

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

Leiolopisma alazon (Lauan ground skink) is a species of skink found on Lau Islands of Fiji. The species is currently critically endangered due to a rise of the Yellow crazy ant and rats on the islands.

26 - Lerista genus : 

Lerista is a diverse (~ 90 species) genus of skinks endemic to Australia, commonly known as sliders.[1] The genus is especially notable for the variation in the amount of limb reduction.[2][3] The variation ranges from short-bodied forms with large legs bearing five toes, to elongate forms completely lacking legs. The body length of the lizards is 33–103 millimetres (1.3–4.1 in). Their locomotion is linked to their body shape. The shorter skinks with prominent limbs travel on the surface; the longer skinks with reduced legs tend to burrow more. A phylogenetic tree of Lerista, derived from DNA analysis, reveals that limb loss has happened multiple times within this group.[4][5] Limb loss has occurred relatively recently, in the past 3.6 million years or so.

Both the specific name, bougainvillii, and the common name, Bougainville's skink, are in honor of French naval officer Hyacinthe de Bougainville.[3]

 

Geographic range :

 

L. bougainvillii is found in south-eastern Australia, including north-eastern Tasmania and many Bass Strait islands.[2]

 

Description :

 

Bougainville's skink has very reduced limbs and moves in a snake-like manner.[2]

 

Habitat :

 

L. bougainvillii is seldom seen as much of its life is spent beneath leaf-litter, loose sand, and thin stone slabs.[2][4]

The western worm lerista (Lerista praepedita) is a species of skink native to coastal areas of southwest and midwest Western Australia. It is found amongst heath and woodlands on coastal dunes.[1]

 

It is very thin, with no front legs and extremely small, stumpy back legs. It is a pale grey or brown, with a prominent, broad, dark brown stripe along each side, and a series of small brown dashes along its back.[1]
