ORMENO, Jesús R. et al. Geographical range extension and conservation status of Ctenoblepharys adspersa (Tschudi, 1845). Rev. peru biol. [online]. 2021, vol.28, n.3, e21118. ISSN 1727-9933.

We extend the geographical distribution of Ctenoblepharys adspersa (Liolaemidae) an endemic and threatened lizard species from the Peruvian desert. Our new record extends the known species distribution ca. 60 km (straight line) east-southeastern from the eastemost record at Paracas National Reserve. We recorded two new type of habitat for C. adspersa that reach to the Pacific foothills and identified the native plants associated to its habitats. Moreover, we review the conservation status and the challenges that facing it, highlighted that most of its populations are vulnerable to the impacts on their habitat caused by the development of urban and agricultural infrastructure.

Keywords : Liolaemidae; habitats; natural history; desert; big-headed lizard; endemic species.
