Between September 1990 and November 1991, 19 Sphenomorphus spp. skinks, including nine S. jobiense, three S. simus, and seven Solomon ground skinks, S. solomonis (Boulenger), were collected from Madang and Morobe Provinces, Papua New Guinea (PNG), and examined for coccidia. A single S. solomonis was found to be infected with a new species of Eimeria Schneider, 1875. Oöcysts of Eimeria perkinsae n. sp. are ellipsoidal with a smooth, colourless, bi-layered wall, measure 18.6 × 14.7 μm, and have a… 
Four new species of coccidia (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from Owen Stanley Skinks, Papuascincus stanleyanus (Sauria: Scincidae), from Papua New Guinea.
TLDR
To the knowledge, these represent the only coccidians ever described from P. stanleyanus and are described here as new.

A revision of the taxonomy and nomenclature of the Eimeria spp. (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from rodents in the Tribe Marmotini (Sciuridae)
TLDR
The number of named eimerian species in the Marmotini is reduced from 40 to 26 valid species; the names of those species that were most similar are synonymised and the species for which the original descriptions were inadequate are considered to be species inquirendae.

TLDR
Three hundred and three individuals representing 14 species of lizards (Scincidae), collected in Papua New Guinea, were examined for metazoan endoparasites and dozens of new host records and two new locality records are reported.

Preliminary results suggest a high degree of phylogenetic diversity but a very low prevalence of Plasmodium spp.
Four New Species of Plasmodium from New Guinea Lizards: Integrating Morphology and Molecules
TLDR
The combined morphological and molecular approach is advised for all future descriptions of new malaria parasite species, particularly in light of situations where every life-history stage is not available.
Molecular systematics of the Philippine forest skinks (Squamata: Scincidae: Sphenomorphus): testing morphological hypotheses of interspecific relationships
TLDR
The results demonstrate that previously recognized species group relationships were misled by phenotypic convergence; Sphenomorphus is widely paraphyletic; and multiple lineages have independently invaded the Philippines.
