LUCIANO JAVIER AVILA, LORENA ELIZABETH MARTINEZ, MARIANA MORANDO

Abstract


We update the list of lizards ofArgentina, reporting a total of 261 species from the country, arranged in 27 genera and 10 families. Introduced species and dubious or erroneous records are discussed. Taxonomic, nomenclatural and distributional comments are provided when required. Considering species of probable occurrence in the country (known to occur inBolivia,Brazil,ChileandParaguayat localities very close to the Argentinean border) and still undescribed taxa, we estimate that the total number of species inArgentinacould exceed 300 in the next few years.
