We review the taxonomic status of Liolaemus islugensis Ortiz & Marquet, 1987, a scarcely known species belonging to the L. montanus group, that was propose as a junior synonym of L. pantherinus Pellegrin, 1909. The comparison of the original descriptions of both species and the review of the type material and other specimens allow us to validate L. islugensis. Liolaemus pantherinus is restricted to Bolivia and Peru, and L. islugensis is distributed in highlands of Chile and Bolivia.
