Hi folks,
This is an image that has been sent to me for a guess at id.
The thing that puzzles me is they say the body length is 16cm give or take a cm.
Someone I trust to get it right.
It's on a railway sleeper so does give some idea of size.
It's not our big dudes Argosarchus ?
To me it looks like Clitarchus hookeri, but they dont get that big ??
Any thoughts O knowledgeable ones ???

Edit :
The sleeper has been measured at 18cm.
So 15 or 16cm is still the measurement thought.
New better image added.

Additional comments? - there were quite a few familes of cape barrens around on churchill island, various ages of the chicks. and they were clearly used to people being in close proximity. these guys walked right up behind me. were it not for the occasional honk i wouldnt have turned around to see them.
Nest present - No

Description

Locality is obscured of course, but the vague location is in central, western Fiordland. Well over 50 km away from any other known Mokopirirakau gecko populations and between the known distributions of Takitimu gecko and Cascade gecko. To my eye some traits point to Takitimu gecko (such as a short tail relative to SVL and a pink tongue), but genetic testing next winter will be needed to help place this population.

First iNaturalist record.

With Graham Armstrong, Pete Ellis, Steve Guy, Guy Langan, Paul Harvey, Phil Heath, Ian Lewis.

Seen for more than an hour after dawn, in a small loose group of Eur. Curlews, feeding in a short-grass field on the south side of the main lake. This was "limpy" - the bird that had been shot about 3 weeks earlier, but seemed to make a recovery.

This location is the last known wintering site for this species. The last record from here was in February 1995.

Here is a link to the last video taken at this site, in January 1995:

A flock of gull-bird tern in adult breeding plumage circled me for several minutes calling loudly during a visit to Kaituna Lagoon end of Lake Ellesmere. Associating strongly with caspian tern and black-billed gulls. Interestingly their calling and circling behaviour was a virtual mimic of the caspian terns which had a breeding colony with young chicks present nearby to protect, something the gull-bills would not have had.
