A review of the Riopa Sundevalli group (Sauria: Scincidae) in Southern Africa by Donald G. Broadley.

Mittleman (1952) resurrected Monchlus Gunther from the synonymy of Riopa Gray and has been followed by Laurent (1964) and Laurent and Gans (1965), although Loveridge (1957) rejected Mittleman’s fragmentation of the Lygosomine genera.
