CommentPINCHEIRA-DONOSO & NUNEZ 2005 synonymized Liolaemus aymararum with L. jamesi which was confirmed by LOBO et al. 2010 (who nevertheless listed aymararum as valid species). Liolaemus jamesi pachecoi LAURENT 1995 has been elevated to full species status. The mtDNA sequence divergence between the taxa identified as L. aymararum and L. stolzmanni by Schulte & Moreno-Roark is approximately 4% (J. Schulte, cited in LANGSTROTH 2011). 
EtymologyNamed after H. Berkeley James, esquire and collector for the British museum.
