A new species of dragon lizard found in western Queensland has been formally described and confirmed by scientists.
The Diporiphora ameliae, or Amelia's canegrass dragon, was discovered several years ago on a station south-west of Longreach.
It has now been studied, and a paper independently peer reviewed and published in a scientific journal.
Arid zone biologist and grazier Angus Emmott found the lizard and was part of the team to study it.
