Abstract

A new species of fossorial skink, the third member of the genus Pseudoacontias, is described from Nosy Be, an island off the northwest coast of Madagascar. This species most resembles P. madagascariensis in limbless body, but differs in color pattern, number of supralabials and infralabials, height of subocular, and overlap relation of primary temporal and supralabials.
