Two of the new species inhabits in southern MendozaProvince and the other one inhabits in central west Río Negro Province. The new speciesexhibit character states that distinguish they from all other members of the  L. elongatus group.Those character states include color pattern, number of scales in dorsum, shape of temporalscales, and size (among others). Although with those new species we clarify the taxonomicstatus of several populations which belongs to the  L. elongatus group, many remain unknown.
