Whilst wandering around Honeysuckle Creek Campground this morning I saw this handsome lizard.

Ross Bennett's Frogs and Reptiles of the ACT tells me that this is a White's Skink, Egernia whitii. Can anybody tell me why there is no Egernia whitii, or anything that looks like it, in Wilson and Swan's Complete Reptiles of Australia?
