During a herpetofaunal survey of the Indawgwi Lake Wildlife Sanctuary, in Kachin State, Myanmar, J.A. Wilkinson, J.V. Vindum, A.K. Shein and Y.M. Win collected an Asian Mockviper (Psammodynastes pulverulentus) specimen (CAS 240982) on 7 July 2008. After a radiograph and the subsequent dissection for prey items in the stomach of CAS 240982, G.R. Zug and A.H. Miller discovered a small skink species that appeared to be distinct from all described Asian Scincidae taxa. Owing to the already progressed digestive processes partaken, the head of specimen is deteriorated and absent. Herein we revisit this specimen to seek the correct identification using supportive morphological, osteological, and molecular data to describe Xxxxxx xxxxx sp. nov. from Kachin State, Myanmar.
