Abstract

This remarkable lizard was first described by Mr. John E. Gray, in 1827, and published in the appendix to the "Narrative of a Survey of the Intertropical and Western Coasts of Australia", by Captain P. P. King, R.N. He considers it closely allied to the Agamae, but differing from them in the peculiar frill that is appended to the neck, and named it Chlamydosaurus kingii. This interesting lizard was found by Mr. Allan Cunningham, who accompanied Captain King's expedition as His Majesty's Botanical Collector for Kew Gardens, on the branch of a tree in Careening Bay, at the bottom of Port Nelson.
