Liolaemus elongatus — MÜLLER & HELLMICH 1938
Liolaemus elongatus — PETERS & DONOSO-BARROS 1970: 182
Liolaemus elongatus — ESPINOZA, LOBO & CRUZ 2000
Liolaemus cf. elongatus — TRONCOSO-PALACIOS et al. 2016 
DistributionArgentina (Mendoza to Chubut, Catamarca. San Juan, La Rioja [HR 30: 116], Rio Negro), elevation 700-3000 m, Chile

Type locality: Near the Cordilleras, Territorio Chubut, Argentina  
ReproductionVivparous. 
TypesHolotype: Mus. La Plata, unlocated. 
CommentDistribution: see Minoli et al. 2013 for a map. Note that these authors restricted elongatus to the southern populations. However, they are less clear about the identity of the northern populations. The photos shown here from “Las Heras” would belong to the northern populations and thus be different from L. elongatus. In summary, the identity of the Chilean populations is controversial (Pincheira-Donoso, pers. comm., 19 July 2017).

Group: Belongs to the Liolaemus elongatus group (fide ESPINOZA et al. 2000). See entry of Liolaemus punmahuida for differential diagnosis.
