Liolaemus ditadai is a rare liolaemid lizard originally described from Salinas Grandes salt-pans flat, in the border between Cordoba and Catamarca Province in central Argentina. Only a few specimens of this species are known. Here, we present a new record that result in a significant extension of the known distribution of the species, which is currently considered to be restricted to a small area in Salinas Grandes. In addition, we comment on previous records of the species in central Argentina.
