Abstract During a survey of vertebrate fauna at a site in Yan Yean, north of Melbourne on the Victorian Volcanic Plain, a small population of Spencer's Skink 'Pseudemoia spenceri' was found inhabiting a heritage dry stone fence. Spencer's Skink is normally found in wet schlerophyll forest and cool temperate environments, and the species is not considered a grassland inhabitant. There are no other records of Spencer's Skink occurring in any part of the Victorian Volcanic Plain.
