|Cape Melville, Cape York, Queensland, Australia|
One of the species is especially unique, the Cape Melville Leaf-tailed Gecko, which, as its name suggests, has a broad flat tail at the end of its 20 cm body. The other species are the Cape Melville Shade Skink which is golden in color and the Blotched Boulder-frog whose range is completely restricted to the boulder fields at Cape Melville.
It is very surprising to find three new species anywhere, let alone in Australia which was thought to have been thoroughly explored.
