Brad Maryan, Robert Browne-Cooper and Brian Bush had been in contact with Allan Evans (Noondoonia Manager) since an earlier unsuccessful trip. The difficulty in finding the exact locality was compounded by a phantom rock outcrop (Kilidwerinia Granite Rock) that is included on all maps of the area but does not exist. With Allan's assistance we were able to find the correct location amongst the thousands of square miles of chenopod country. As a small token of appeciation we left him with a block of good WA beer.
There had been nothing remarkable previously recorded regarding the habitat of this dragon lizard, although we soon got a bit of a handle on the best place to find active lizards. All individuals occupied limestone rock-strewn low rises amongst the generally flat non-rock-strewn landscape.
Five individuals were collected, with four of these being caught by the World's greatest lizarder using a flick rod and noose. Without Robert's skill, Brad and I would probably still be out there scrambling around on our hands and knees attempting to catch the quick little devils!
