Pogona minor minima, the Abrolhos bearded dragon or Abrolhos dwarf bearded dragon, is an agamid lizard found only on islands at Houtman Abrolhos, and commonly named for this location. It is closely related to other bearded dragons found in Western Australia.

The range is restricted to three islands of the Wallabi Group: North Island, East Wallabi Island, and West Wallabi Island. The distribution range of this subspecies is around 80 km from the mainland and its near relations.
