Abstract

We show updated distribution maps, extension and occupation range for three high Andean lizards species (Squamata: Liolaemidae) endemic to the O’Higgins Region, Chile: Liolaemus curis, Liolaemus ubaghsi and Phymaturus damasense, based on both historical records for these species and new records compiled during field work activities conducted by the Wildlife Unit of Agriculture and Livestock Service - SAG, O’Higgins Región, Chile. Considering that populations of these lizards face conservation threats and this new distributional data, we suggest to update their conservation status.
