Abstract
The common, endemic New Caledonian skink Caledoniscincus austrocaledonicus is reported for the first time from the far north of the territory, specifically from lie Surprise in the D'Entrecasteaux Reefs. The herpetofauna of lie Surprise is characteristic of littoral habitats in mainland New Caledonia. The overwater transport of C. austrocaledonicus, like that of C. atropunctatus, which occurs in Vanuatu as well as New Caledonia, has probably been relatively recent.
