status

 

Complex boulengeri

An appreciable amount of research has been devoted to understand the diversity, biogeography and phylogenetic relationships of the Liolaemus species belonging to the complex boulengeri ( Etheridge 1993, 1995, 2000; Morando et al. 2004; Abdala 2007; see also Halloy et al. 1998; Cruz et al. 2005). Indeed, this group of Liolaemus is perhaps the best known phylogenetically within the entire family Liolaemidae . In general, most phylogenetic hypotheses support the idea that two major clades form this large complex of species, one recognized as wiegmannii clade or subgenus Ortholaemus ( Cei 1993; Etheridge 1995, 2000; Espinoza et al. 2004; Cruz et al. 2005), and the other as fitzingerii clade ( Pincheira-Donoso & Núñez 2005; see Etheridge 1995; Schulte et al. 2000, for phylogenetic details).
