This species belongs to the subgenus Odatria.
V. bushi is most similar to the stripe-tailed goanna and the pygmy Mulga goanna of all monitor lizards. However, the Pilbara monitor can be distinguished from these other two species by some morphological and genetic differences. 
Details about the behavior of this monitor are relatively unknown.
