Ramphotyphlops proximus (Waite, 1893)
This large species may also exceed 60 cm in length. It is found throughout most of New South Wales and adjoining areas, and the coast and ranges of Queensland up to Cape York. It is usually brownish in colour.
In some texts it has been reported as being very common in built-up parts of Sydney, where it supposedly feeds on insects that accumulate on the bottom of street light poles at night. I have not seen this in many years of living in Sydney.
Like all Blind Snakes, this species is in urgent need of further research.
The above was from the book Australian Reptiles and Frogs by Raymond Hoser and now available on a fantastic CD-Rom along with a vast amount of other information, papers and the like on reptiles, frogs and other wildlife.
