CommentDiagnosis. Small (61.4 mm maximum SVL), slender Liolaemus, closely related to L. chavin sp. n., L. pachacutec sp. n., L. tacnae and L. walkeri (Fig. 1). It differs from L. chavin sp. n., L. pachacutec sp. n. and L. walkeri in having a ringed pattern on the ventral tail of adult males. It differs from L. pachacutec sp. n. in having spots in the lateral fields. Liolaemus wari differs from L. tacnae and L. chavin in having precloacal pores in males. In comparison with other species assigned to the L. alticolor group, L. wari sp. n. differs from L. chaltin in having precloacal pores in males. It differs from L. paulinae in lacking keeled neck scales. It differs from L. puna, L. alticolor and L. incaicus in having black spots on belly of adult males. It differs from L. aparicioi in lacking keeled temporal scales. It differs from L. bitaeniatus and L. pagaburoi in having a smooth dorsal surface of the head (rough to slightly dorsal surface of the head). It differs from L. pyriphlogos in the absence of red marks in the lateral field (red marks in the lateral fields present). It differs from L. variegatus in the absence of keeled temporal scales, rugose dorsal head scales and precloacal pores in females.
