Scincella is a genus of lizards in the skink family, Scincidae, commonly referred to as ground skinks.[1] The exact number of species in the genus is unclear, as taxonomic reclassification is ongoing, and sources vary widely. Scincella species primarily range throughout the temperate regions of the world and are typically small, fossorial lizards, which consume a wide variety of arthropods.

The genus Scincella contains the following 34 recognized species.[2]

Nota bene: A binomial authority in parentheses indicates that the species was originally described in a genus other than Scincella.
