No es L. gaigeae... para mi que parece un L. sylvaticum, pero ejemplar chico/ juvenil. La otra opción sería L. micropholis.. pero no creo.

Unfortunately, when I took this photo, it was the first Lepidophyma I had ever seen. I think they were all flavimaculatum then as well.
I made the identification based on my assumption that was the species in the area.

Hmm it doesnt look like L. sylvaticum, perhaps its a L. gaigeae. Do you have a photo of the tail or head?
