The striped grass skink, Eutropis trivittata (Hardwicke & Gray, 1827) is a wide ranging skink, distributed in northern and eastern India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Nepa. The nomen of the species had a murky taxonomic history and for a considerable time period it was known by a junior subjective synonym, E. dissimilis, which was rectified by Amarasinghe et al. (2022). The present communication is the first record of the species from the Saurashtra region of Gujarat state, India. In Gujarat, the species was previously reported from Central Gujarat, based on one specimen found three decades ago.
