Scorpions of Brazil
Hemiscorpiidae (Scorpiones) from Iran, with descriptions of two new species and notes on biogeography and phylogenetic relationships
A hypothesis on the geological events that probably triggered the present distribution of Hemiscorpius is finally proposed and a thorough analysis of hemispermatophores shows close phylogenetic relationships with several genera of the family Liochelidae.
Nucleotide Composition of CO1 Sequences in Chelicerata (Arthropoda): Detecting New Mitogenomic Rearrangements
The results indicate that these two orders are more liable to fix mutations of all types, including base substitutions, indels, and genomic rearrangements.
Scorpion envenoming in two regions of Colombia: clinical, epidemiological and therapeutic aspects.
The first molecular phylogeny of Buthidae (Scorpiones)
The strong support for a monophyletic Old World group of 13 genera (mainly Palearctic desert forms) is demonstrated, while representative genera from Madagascar and Southeast Asia are demonstrated outside, as well as New World genera Centruroides and Rhopalurus.
Taxonomic consideration of the genus Odontobuthus Vachon (Scorpiones, Buthidae), with description of a new species
The two species of the genus Odontobuthus Vachon known at present are reassessed and considered to be valid. A new species, Odontobuthus bidentatus sp. n. is described from Iraq and from the region
Further considerations on the genus Buthacus Birula, 1908 (Scorpiones, Buthidae) with a description of one new species and two new subspecies
Considerations are outlined regarding the relationships of several species of the genus Buthacus distributed in north- ern Africa and the Middle East. The stability of the characters used to define
New addition to the scorpion fauna (Arachnida: Scorpiones) of Sri Lanka
The study of a collection of scorpions from Sri Lanka, now deposited in the Natural History Museum, Geneva, is presented, which comprises 3 families, 3 genera and 7 species.
