Thanks for the input, guys...and also the spelling correction As I'm sure you've seen on the forums here on KS, there is much interbreeding of species, and while we're reasonably sure the offspring of Carpets and Chondros (Carpondros) are mules, since none have, to my knowledge, produced fertile eggs, The whole carpet group is probably able to interbreed and produce viable young. There is also an offspring from a ball python and Woma that exist, which is really odd.
Back to Apodora and Boelens. While I have both "Aussie" Olives (eggs due in 2 weeks!!) and Apodora, I can't see where anyone would mistake one for the other, other than them both being green. As I said before, taxonomy is not my strong suit, but the geographical distribution and appearance of both those animals seems to make them a bit closer to each other than any other species.
BTW, love your country. Ayers Rock, in person, was amazing, and that cable car ride out of Kuranda down to Cairns is breathtaking. It's been 10 years since we were there, and I hope to do it again. Friendly people, too. Sheep joke..told to me by an Aussie.... "How can you tell the difference between Oz sheep and Kiwi sheep?.... Kiwi sheep back up to the fences."

Apologies to any New Zealanders.....we were there, also.
