CommentLiolaemus patriciaiturrae belongs to the "ruibali" group, and is one of the largest species in this group; males exhibit a melanic throat and chest. Liolaemus patriciaiturrae differs from L. cf. vallecurensis by lacking auricular and tympanic scales. The dorsal scales are juxtaposed in L. patriciaiturrae and semi- imbricated in L. vallecurensis (s. str.). Dorsal pattern and adults size are the main features marking a difference among L. patriciaiturrae, L. duellmani, L. eleodori, L. famatinae, L. rosenmanni and L. ruibali.
