Liolaemus constanzae Donoso-Barros

Liolaemus constanzae Donoso-Barros 1961a: 389 .

Content: Two subspecies restricted to the Atacama Desert in northern Chile ( Donoso-Barros 1966a, 1970b; Cei 1993; Pincheira-Donoso & Núñez 2005; Pincheira-Donoso 2005). Although Liolaemus donosoi was recently resurrected as a subspecies of L. constanzae ( Pincheira-Donoso & Núñez 2005; see previous discussions in Núñez & Jaksic 1992; Etheridge & Espinoza 2000), it is still needed to evaluate with modern analytical procedures (e.g. molecular variables) the status of these two taxa. Indeed, at this time, limited morphological data and their fully isolated geographical ranges (separated by the preandean Domeyko mountain chain; see Ramírez & Pincheira-Donoso 2005) are the only available evidence supporting the subspecific rank of these lizards.
