predator678,
I think the eyes bulge out to much, and are way to big for the last two species. Also, I think it was found active at night.

Yup those eyes don't fit either of the other genera.
The fact that you say it resembles another Lamprophis species so strongly is a good indicator that it belongs to the genus.
The way to success has no shortcuts.
