The reproductive cycle and diet are described for a population Liolaernus koslowskyi studied at Pomán, Departamento Pomán, Catamarca, Argentina. This species has a seasonal reproductive cycle with egg production occurring in spring and early summer. Females may produce two clutches of eggs each year. Clutch size vares from 3-9 eggs and is correlated with female snout-vent length. The diet of males and females consists of ants, beetles, hemipterans, larvae, pupae, and spiders. Numerically, ants are most abundant in the diet whereas volumetrically, beetles contribute the most.
