Abstract

750 reptile specimens comprising 38 species, representing 30 genera and 7 families were examined from the Wagga Wagga area. A further 9 species might be expected to occur in the area or nearby regions. Two species not previously recorded from the area, Gehyra variegata and Lerista muelleri are south-east range extensions for these species. Significant habitat alteration in the area has probably resulted in reduction in reptile numbers and the species densities. Fractionation of habitat has resulted in the isolation of many populations.
