DistributionArgentina (S Patagonia, Rio Negro, Santa Cruz, Chubut [Williams 1997]); elevation 780-1500 m.

Type locality: Patagonia  
TypesSyntypes: BMNH 1946.8.5.72-75 (formerly xxii.90a-d) 
CommentGroup: lineomaculatus group. This group differs from the L. magellanicus and the L. kingii groups in the absence of precloacal pores and the presence of trifid scales. Whereas species of the L. lineomaculatus group are characterized by two paravertebral and quadrangular black or brown series of blotches surrounded by two well-defined whitish lines (in general, to the tip of the tail), species of the L. kingii group do not show this pattern and present transversal lines or a wide vertebral line (Breitman et al. 2013).

Distribution: Reports of Liolaemus lineomaculatus from Chile are apparently in error and represent L. archeforus, L. sarmientoi or L. escarchadosi (González-Gutiérrez 2019).
