We describe a new slender species of Liolaemus of the L. alticolor-bibronii group of the subgenus Liolaemus. The new species is phenetically and biogeographically close to L. alticolor, L. paulinae, and L. puna but presents a combination of character states that differentiates it from all other species of Liolaemus. The new taxon is the first species of subgenus Liolaemus sensu stricto recorded as having supernumerary pores. The new species inhabits places where Parastrephia lucida is the predominant flora and is distributed in areas close to Putre, in the Arica y Parinacota region, northern Chile. Data on its biology, complete distribution, and conservation status are lacking.
