Liolaemus multicolor Koslowsky

Liolaemus signifer var. multicolor Koslowsky 1898: 182 (type locality: “ Jujuy Province ”. Restricted to Valle de Guayatayoc, Argentina, Laurent 1982b).

Liolaemus ornatus Donoso-Barros 1970a: 191 .

Liolaemus multicolor Laurent 1982b: 91 , 1992: 31; Vanzolini 1986: 15; Etheridge 1995: 34; Etheridge & Espinoza 2000: 7; Núñez & Veloso 2001: 111; Chebez et al. 2005: 33; Sura 2005: 429; Díaz 2007: 116.

Liolaemus (Eulaemus) multicolor Pincheira-Donoso 2005: 135 ; Pincheira-Donoso & Núñez 2005: 161.

Observations: Núñez & Veloso (2001) provided the first record of L. multicolor from Chilean territory (Salar de Aguas Calientes, 4200 m, El Loa Province, Antofagasta Region). In later studies, Pincheira-Donoso (2005) and Pincheira-Donoso & Núñez (2005) cited the species for the northeastern high Andes of this country, following Núñez & Veloso (2001). Nevertheless, a recent reassessments of the only specimen studied by Núñez & Veloso (2001) suggests that it might be a subadult of L. andinus . In addition, field observations conducted in the populations recognized as L. multicolor by Pincheira-Donoso (2005) appear to support the idea that further analyses are needed to proof the existence of this species in Chile. Since available information as well as lizard samples are still limited, definitive conclusions are not possible at this time. Yet, the problem deserves to be reevaluated.
