Abstract. Lie symmetries for ordinary differential equations are studied.
In systems of ordinary differential equations, there do not always exist non-trivial Lie symmetries around equilibrium points.
We present a necessary condition for existence of Lie symmetries analytic in the neighbourhood of an equilibrium point.
In addition, this result can be applied to a necessary condition for existence of a Lie symmetry in quasihomogeneous systems of ordinary differential equations.
With the help of our main theorem, it is proved that several systems do not possess any analytic Lie symmetries.
