One source ( doesn't have the E. okadae, but has an E. japonicus. This source also given the common name "Okada's Skink" to E. latiscutadus, which looks suspicious.

Elsewhere, the name "Japanese five-lined Skink" is given for E. japonicus.

Some herpetologist should clear up the okadae, latiscutadus, and japonicus mess, please.

I have placed the articles about these Eumeces skinks at the common names. The article on the Coal Skink is at Coal Skink (with "Skink" capitalized, as it is part of the name). I also have always created redirects to the article for the common name, but with "skink" (Coal skink) as well as for the binomial name, both as Eumeces anthracinus and Eumeces Anthracinus. I have not created redirects for the trinomial names. In some cases, where alternate names exist, these also became redirects, e.g. the Broad-headed Skink is also known under the name Broadhead Skink.

I think I'm done with the Eumeces. I have done all the North-American species, including the Bermuda Rock Skink. As I'm not a biologist, I cannot do the rest: I depend on on-line information in a language I can read for these articles. I can't read Asian languages, and even though I can read Spanish, I haven't found much about all the Mexican species. Somebody else will have to take over... Lupo 10:50, 21 Apr 2004 (UTC)
