The spectacular, virtually endemic radiation of Philippine semi-fossorial skinks of the genus Brachymeles represent one of the few radiations of scincid lizards to possess both fully limbed and limbless species. And yet, nothing is known of the phylogenetic relationships of this exceptional group. Description. Brachymeles bonitae is a small, elongated lizard with a snout-to-vent length of up to 80 mm (3 in). It is a "non-pentadactyl" species, different populations having a varying number of digits on each tiny limb, normally in the range zero to es that differentiate it from other similar skinks include the 47 to 57 presacral vertebrae and the number of rows of scales present.
