The thermal ecology of the lizard Liolaemus pseudoanomalus was studied at La Laja, Albardón Department, San Juan Province, Argentina. Data were collected every 10 days from August 2000 to August 2001 by randomly revisiting bushes and low flagstones across the study site. Each individual was captured by hand, and the cloacal (Tb), substrate (Ts) and air (Ts) temperatures were measured (to nearest 0.1°C) with a rapid reading Miller-Weber thermometer. Tb was not influenced by season, sex or age group. There was a significant positive linear association between Tb/Ta and Tb/Ts. Tb and SVL were not correlated. The average field temperature of the study species was similar to other Liolaemus in the same geographic province. It is concluded that the thermal strategy of the species was heliothermy and thigmothermy.
