Systematic Revision of the Asian Forest Scorpions (Heterometrinae Simon, 1879), Revised Suprageneric Classification of Scorpionidae Latreille, 1802, and Revalidation of Rugodentidae Bastawade et al., 2005
TLDR
The genera and species of the Asian forest scorpions are revised based on a phylogenetic analysis of 186 morphological characters and 4188 base pairs of concatenated DNA sequence from three mitochondrial loci and two nuclear loci.
A review of the scorpion fauna of Saudi Arabia
TLDR
The Saudi fauna was found to comprise at least 28 species and subspecies of the families Buthidae, Scorpionidae and Hemiscorpiidae, and the most common subspecies here was Scorpio maurus kruglovi.
Uso de microhábitat por escorpiones en un relicto de bosque seco tropical del Caribe colombiano
Microhabitat use by scorpions was studied in the Reserva Forestal Protectora Serrania de Coraza, department of Sucre, a tropical dry forest relict of the Colombian Caribbean. The scorpions were
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.
CATÁLOGO DE LOS ESCORPIONES DE VENEZUELA (ARACHNIDA: SCORPIONES)
TLDR
An updated list of the Venezuelan scorpiofauna is presented: for each species there is detailed information on type material and geographi- cal distribution, with taxonomical comments and a selection of bibliographical references.
A New Troglomorphic, Leaf-litter Scorpion from Ecuador (Troglotayosicidae: Troglotayosicus)
TLDR
The known distribution of Troglotayosicus was considerably expanded along the Andes, and it was demonstrated that, despite the absence of median ocelli, the genus is composed primarily of species that inhabit leaf litter.
Another one bites the dust: taxonomic sampling of a key genus in phylogenomic datasets reveals more non-monophyletic groups in traditional scorpion classification
TLDR
Three-cluster likelihood mapping revealed that the instability inherent to the placement of Hadrurus, Uroctonus and Belisarius was attributable to significant gene tree conflict in the internodes corresponding to their divergences, which is anticipated to reveal additional non-monophyletic groups.
Aracnofauna (Arachnida) de la Isla del Coco, Costa Rica, con la descripción de tres nuevas especies
TLDR
The list of arachnid species for Coco Island is updated, providing new information about little-known taxa and describing new species, of which three are new to science.

A universal register for animal names
TLDR
The ICZN executive secretary Andrew Polaszek argues the case for a major upgrade to the ‘Code’ for its next edition, and proposes an open-access web-register for animal names, which they believe is vital to move taxonomy into the twenty-first century.
Antillean scorpions deposited at the Montana State University (Arachnida: Scorpiones)
TLDR
Euscorpius is the first research publication completely devoted to scorpions and takes advantage of the rapidly evolving medium of quick online publication, at the same time maintaining high research standards for the burgeoning field of scorpion science (scorpiology).
Scorpion higher phylogeny and classification, taxonomic anarchy, and standards for peer review in online publishing
TLDR
Pending the outcome of a rigorous phylogenetic analysis, published according to acceptable standards of scholarship in a peer‐reviewed journal, the suprageneric classification of Scorpiones is reinstated and all changes to the classification proposed by Soleglad, Fet and colleagues since 2001 are rejected.
Three unusually divergent new genera of phorid flies (Diptera: Phoridae) from Costa Rica
TLDR
Three new genera and species, Laciniomyia dilata, Laishania angustithorax, and Tabelliphora teretipenna are described from female specimens collected in Costa Rica, which are among the most structurally unusual forms found in the New World.
A new genus and new species of Crangonidae (Crustacea, Decapoda, Caridea) from the southwestern Pacific
A new crangonid genus and species, Pseudopontophilus serratus n. gen., n. sp., is established from the southwestern Pacific. The new genus is closely related to Pontophilus Leach, 1817 and
A new genus and species of Collembola from caves of south Iberian Peninsula (Collembola, Poduromorpha, Onychiuridae)
A new genus and species of Onychiuridae (Collembola, Poduromorpha) from caves in the south of the Iberian Peninsula is described. The usual dichotomous keys would locate this species somewhere
A new genus and subfamily of scorpions from Lower Cretaceous Burmese amber (Scorpiones: Chaerilidae)
Electrochaerilus buckleyi sp. nov., Electrochaerilus gen. nov. y Electrochaerilinae subfam. nov. son descritos del ambar del Cretacico Inferior (Albiano Superior; edad aproximada es 98,9-112,2 Ma) de
A new genus of millipedes (Diplopoda: Polydesmida: Dalodesmidae) from wet forests in southern Victoria, with brief remarks on the Victorian Polydesmida
TLDR
Four species of Dalodesmidae and 15 species of Paradoxosomatidae have now been described from Victoria, and a diverse fauna of non-paradoxosom atid Polydesmida remains to be described from Victorian wet forests.
A taxonomic revision of the Tragulus mouse‐deer (Artiodactyla)
The taxonomy of South-East Asian mouse-deer (Tragulus) is complex, and after some 120 years of considerable taxonomic revisions of the genus a clear key is still lacking for the determination of
Assembling the tree of life
TLDR
This edited volume is provides an authoritative synthesis of knowledge about the history of life, by the leading workers in their fields, and should prove indispensable for evolutionary biologists, taxonomists, ecologists interested in biodiversity, and as a baseline sourcebook for organismic biologists, botanists, and microbiologists.
