Abstract

A new species in the genus Ctenotus, from the Northern Territory is described and figured. It has previously been confused with C. inornatus from which it is distinguished. Data are provided on its reproduction and habitat preferences. Aspects of reproduction of C. inornatus are considered in a comparison between the two species.
