Abstract

Four new species of scincid lizards in the genus Lobulia are described from high elevations (≥2350 m) in New Guinea. Some of the features that may permit these skinks to live at high elevation are: dark color pattern, “tinted” lower eyelids and live-bearing reproductive mode. All of the species may be threatened by global climate warming. The generic concept of Lobulia is discussed and a key to the species provided.
