Liolaemus major Boulenger

Liolaemus pictus var. major Boulenger 1885a: 152 (type locality: “ Chili ”).

Liolaemus capillitas Hulse 1979: 204 (synonymy fide Núñez 2004); McCoy & Censky 1982: 326; Vanzolini 1986: 13; Laurent 1992: 31; Cei 1993: 280; Etheridge 1995: 33; Etheridge & Espinoza 2000: 5; Lobo 2001: 139; Avila et al. 2003: 534; Chebez et al. 2005: 29; Sura 2005: 428; Díaz & Lobo 2006: 264; Díaz 2007: 114.

Liolaemus major Núñez 2004: 32 .

Observations: After studying the collection of Liolaemidae types housed in the British Museum of Natural History of London, Núñez (2004) concluded that the type specimens originally named Liolaemus pictus var. major by Boulenger (1885a) are the species currently known as L. capillitas , from Argentina ( Cei 1993). This type material is labeled as collected from “ Chili ” ( Chile). Nevertheless, when Núñez (2004) reassessed the taxonomic status of these individuals, he did not propose a new type locality in accordance with the distribution of its synonymous L. capillitas (now L. major fide Núñez 2004 ). Consequently, although L. major (= L. capillitas ) would be endemic to Argentina (see Cei 1993), its type locality is still recognized as “ Chili ”.
