8. Mocoa trilineata.
New Holland Moco.
This widely distributed small Lizard has been frequently page 27 captured, it is very common under bark, or among dead leaves or branches. Its eggs are deposited among decomposed leaves in moist places, and are from 10 to 16, and perhaps more in number. I have often taken as many as 50 out of one of these breeding places, but I believe that they were the produce of several lizards.
In the neighbourhood of Sydney, where M. trilineata is very common, the eggs are generally laid between the fronds of the so called "Staghorn fern."
