This study evaluates the morphology of scorpions of the “vorhiesi complex” from seven regions in Arizona to verify the validity of the species and their accompanying diagnoses, and describes a new species of Vaejovis, V. electrum, from the Pinaleño Mountains in Arizona.
The vorhiesi Group of Vaejovis C.L. Koch, 1836 (Scorpiones: Vaejovidae), in Arizona, with Description of a New Species from the Hualapai Mountains
A new species in the vorhiesi group of Vaejovis C.L. Koch, 1836, which appears to be endemic to the Hualapai Mountains near Kingman, Arizona, is described and illustrated.
Monophyly of the subfamily Neobisiinae (Pseudoscorpiones: Neobisiidae)
Whether or not the two subfamilies of the Neobisiidae are monophyletic is tested by inferring the phylogeny of the family using DNA sequence data from the mitochondrial protein-coding gene, COI, and the nuclear ribosomal gene 28S, and results of the molecular phylogenetic analyses indicate that neither of the subfamily is monophylets as presently defined.
