Mabuya nigropunctata

Mabuya nigropunctata is a species of skink found in South America. It has shiny bronze or copper skin, with a dark longitudinal stripe along each flank that is often bordered by cream-colored lines.

It was until recently confused with M. bistriata, many populations of which have since been reassigned to M. nigropunctata. It may also be considered a synonym with the closely related M. mabouya, which is found in the Caribbean. This taxonomy has undergone significant revision in recent years and remains unresolved.

It has been recorded as present in Brazil, French Guiana, Guyana, Suriname, Venezuela, Bolivia, Peru, Trinidad, and Tobago.
