A new specie of the genus Liolaemus, collected from the departments of Andalgalá and Santa María, province of Catamarca, Argentine, between 2200 and 3000 m above sea level is described. This new lizard belongs to the boulengeri group, darwinii complex. It is a viviparous specie and presents a unique dorsal pattern of coloration. The males are characterized by pre- and postscapular spots, several lateral spots, superciliar, supralabial, mental and rostral scales orange during the reproductive season. The species described here was previously assigned to Liolaemus quilmes, but differences in reproductive mode and coloration pattern reveal it is another species of the darwinii complex.
