Liolaemus chillanensis Müller & Hellmich

Liolaemus monticola chillanensis Müller & Hellmich 1932c: 183 .

Content: Two subspecies restricted to central-southern and southern Chile. In a recent study, PincheiraDonoso & Núñez (2005) recognized these two taxa as geographical populations of Liolaemus chillanensis , providing full species category to L. monticola . In the same work, Pincheira-Donoso & Núñez (2005) suggested that L. chillanensis chillanensis and L. chillanensis villaricensis might be a single taxon ( L. chillanensis ) with no clear limits to be considered formal subspecies. Both populations not only exhibit substantial overlap of phenotypic traits, but also appear to have continuous geographical ranges. Therefore, their status need to be studied in more detail in order to determine their, if any, phylogenetic boundaries (see also Pincheira-Donoso 2003b).
