A REVIEW OF AND ADDITIONS TO THE CURRENT KNOWLEDGE OF THE SCORPION GENUS EUSCORPIUS THORELL, 1876 (SCORPIONES, EUSCORPIIDAE)
TLDR
The main aim of this work is to provide a complete review which will be useful both to have clearance on current systematics of the complex genus Euscorpius and to interpret possible future taxonomic rearrangements. Expand
Troglomorphism, trichobothriotaxy and typhlochactid phylogeny (Scorpiones, Chactoidea): more evidence that troglobitism is not an evolutionary dead‐end
TLDR
The phylogeny of Typhlochactidae challenges the conventional wisdom that ecological specialization (stenotopy) is unidirectional and irreversible, falsifying Cope's Law of the unspecialized and Dollo’s Law of evolutionary irreversibility. Expand
Description of a new species of Compsobuthus Vachon, 1949 (Scorpiones: Buthidae) from southern Iran
TLDR
A new species of Compsobuthus Vachon, 1949, of a slender appearance with particularly elongated pedipalp chelae, and is easy to distinguish from all congeneric taxa. Expand
Species boundaries and phylogeography of the "Euscorpius carpathicus complex" (Scorpiones: Euscorpiidae) in Italy.
TLDR
DNA sequence data show no evidence of genetic introgression between different evolutionary lineages from the area of range overlap, suggesting the absence of either past or ongoing inter-specific gene flow, and support the recent morphological distinction of E. tergestinus, as traditionally classified, into two different species.

Populist parties and foreign policy: The case of Italy’s Five Star Movement
The role of political parties in foreign policy is gaining increasing attention. Nonetheless, despite an extraordinary interest in ‘populism’, the foreign policy of populist parties has rarely beenExpand
Decapoda Brachyura from Monte Argentario (Mediterranean Sea, central Tyrrhenian)
[The paper is an annotated check list of the Decapoda Brachyura hitherto found in the Tyrrhenian Sea, off Monte Argentario at the southern end of the Tuscan Archipelago (Italy). The data wereExpand
Systematic Revision of the Troglomorphic North American Scorpion Family Typhlochactidae (Scorpiones: Chactoidea)
TLDR
An illustrated revision of the scorpion family Typhlochactidae is provided based on a reexamination of most specimens in the world's collections, including new specimens collected after the original descriptions and older specimens not previously described, providing a visual atlas to the morphology of these remarkable scorpions. Expand
The scorpion of Montecristo, Euscorpius oglasae Di Caporiacco, 1950, stat. nov. (Scorpiones, Euscorpiidae): a paleo-endemism of the Tuscan Archipelago (northern Tyrrhenian, Italy).
TLDR
The scorpion of Montecristo Island (Tuscan Archipelago, Italy): Euscorpius carpathicus oglasae Di Caporiacco, 1950, is a poorly known taxon and is elevated to the rank of species following a thorough study of the comparative morphology of 372 specimens. Expand
A NEW TROGLOBITIC SCORPION OF THE GENUS TAUREPANIA GONZÁLEZ-SPONGA, 1978 FROM VENEZUELA (SCORPIONES; CHACTIDAE)
Taurepania trezzii sp. n. from Venezuela is described and compared with other species of the family Chactidae. It is characterized by trichobothrial pattern of type C, absence of retrolateral andExpand
