A new species of skink in the sand-swimming genus Lerista is described from two islands on the western side of the Gulf of Carpentaria, Australia. In lacking forelimbs and in having only a monodactyl or stylar hindlimb the new species is one of the six most reduced-limbed members of the genus. It appears to be most closely related to L. praepedita from far western Australia.
