New lizard species confirmed in outback Queensland

A new species of dragon lizard found in western Queensland has been formally described and confirmed by scientists.

The Diporiphora ameliae, or Amelia’s canegrass dragon, was discovered several years ago on a station south-west of Longreach.

It has now been studied, and a paper independently peer reviewed and published in a scientific journal.

Arid zone biologist and grazier Angus Emmott found the lizard and was part of the team to study it — via redwolf.newsvine.com
