  SFFO - Sand Skink Recovery Plan
The monotypic genus Neoseps was established by Stejneger (1910) in describing the uniquely fossorial  sand skink of the central Florida sand ridges.
Neoseps has persisted in old growth stands of scrub (greater than 60 years old) on Archbold Biological Station in the vicinity of firelanes, suggesting that artificial clearings may be important to N.
A 1992 survey was conducted to provide information on the distribution of sand skinks in the Ocala NF in relation to forest management practices (clear-cutting, burning, bracke and broadcast seeding).

The Scincinae has over 20 genera (including Eumeces and Neoseps) that are found mainly in Africa.
As with the Lygosominae, much variation exists in the condition of the limbs and mode of reproduction.
Only three genera and 15 species of skinks exist in the United States: the ground skink, Lygosoma laterale; the sand skink, Neoseps reynoldsi; and the common skinks (genus Eumeces).

Strategies that partitioned the ND1 gene by codon position performed better than other partition strategies, regardless of the overall number of partitions.
Scincidae, Acontinae, Lygosominae, East Asian and North American "Eumeces" + Neoseps; North African Eumeces, Scincus, and Scincopus, and a large group primarily from sub-Saharan Africa, Madagascar, and neighboring islands are monophyletic.
Feylinia, a limbless group of previously uncertain relationships, is nested within a "scincine" clade from sub-Saharan Africa.

 Kingsnake.com - Herpforum - RE: Plestiodon or Eumeces?
28, from 2004), and it seems that they have reasonably good evidence that Neoseps, Scincus, and Scincopus are nested within Eumeces, but they have poor support for a lot of nodes in their tree and, because of very limited outgroup sampling, they have no data to test for polyphyly of the genus as a whole.
This would mean that strict cladists, rejecting all paraphyletic taxa, would have to say that either: 1.
But Eumeces with the smaller genera lumped into it is a monophyletic taxon in their tree, so there's no need to split it.

Not only do most of Florida's lizards eat insects, which the state has in ample supply, but many are vital sources of prey for larger lizards, birds, mammals, and snakes.
Two native Florida lizard species enjoy protection under federal law-the blue-tailed mole skink (Eumeces egregious lividus) and sand skink (Neoseps reynoldsi) - and one is protected under state law as a species of special concern: the Florida Keys mole skink (Eumeces egregious egregious).
Although no published inventories exist of herpetofauna diversity in the littoral zone of Lake Okeechobee, the COE's 18 month wildlife and habitat utilization survey in 1997-8 encountered the Eumeces inexpectatus): The five-lined skink is one of south Florida\'s 3 native skink species.
