CommentPINCHEIRA-DONOSO & NÚÑEZ 2005 and PINCHEIRA-DONOSO et al. 2008 considered L. poecilochromus as a synonym of L. andinus, a decision that is rejected by LOBO et al. 2010. More recently, PINCHEIRA-DONOSO agreed that it is likely a valid species (pers. comm., 23 May 2017), but does not occur in Chile.
