ABDALA, Cristian Simón et al. Categorización del estado de conservación de de las lagartijas y anfisbenas de la República Argentina. Cuad. herpetol. [online]. 2012, vol.26, suppl.1, pp.215-248. ISSN 1852-5768.

After the first herpetofaunal red list for Argentina, which was published in the year 2000, there had been numerous changes and studies made on different groups of lizards from Argentina. Although there had been contributions in all areas of lizard biology, those made in taxonomy and ecology are the most evident. Due to these and the implementation of substantial modifications with respect to the methodology used in the year 2000, a group of twenty-seven specialists from different Argentinian institutions contributed biological, ecological, geographic and taxonomic information to a workshop that allowed re-evaluation of the conservation status of the 256 lizard and amphisbaenian species from Argentina. Results indicate that 78 species are included in the red list (one Endangered, nine Threatened, and 68 Vulnerable), 31 are insufficiently known and 147 Non-threatened. Compared with the previous AHA categorization, 94 new species have been added, of which 87 are new taxa, four revalidations, and three species were incorporated to the Argentina fauna; five species were deleted from the Argentina list. Compared with the 2000 yr results, threatened species increased from five to nine species, and vulnerable species increased from seven to 68, including all species of the genera Phymaturus and Anisolepis. There are 31 species considered as insufficiently known against 108 listed in this category in 2000. These results are partially based on the increase in systematic, biological, ecological and biogeographical knowledge of lizards and amphisbaenians, and by the radical change in methodology and by effects of anthropogenic pressure on species and/or their habitats.
