Scorpion fauna in Turkmenistan includes six genera and seven species of Buthidae, all belonging to the Saharo-Gobian (desert Palearctic) genera. Mesobuthus eupeus, M. caucasicus, and Orthochirus scrobiculosus are nearly ubiquitous and exhibit intraspecific variation; they are also widespread beyond the boundaries of Turkmenistan. Specialized Turanian sand desert genera include Liobuthus kessleri and Anomalobuthus rickmersi, and the endemic Pectinibuthus birulai. The last species, Kraepelinia… 
Scorpions of Iran (Arachnida: Scorpiones). Part VII. Kerman Province
Summary Ten species of scorpions belonging to three families are reported from the Lorestan Province of Iran. Of these, five species are recorded from the province for the first time: Hottentotta
Geographical Distribution of the Genus Mesobuthus (Scorpiones: Buthidae) in Mongolia
TLDR
The diversity of scorpions in six provinces of Mongolia between 2001 and 2012 was surveyed and the occurrence of the species Mesobuthus eupeus mongolicus was confirmed and the presence of M. Martensii martensii was reported for the first time.
History of study and checklist of the scorpion fauna (Arachnida: Scorpiones) of Iran
An updated checklist of the scorpion fauna of Iran, as well as a brief history of taxonomic research on scorpions of Iran is presented. The checklist is based on records of scorpion species whose
Notes on the genus Mesobuthus (Scorpiones: Buthidae) in China, with description of a new species
TLDR
Nine species and subspecies of the genus Mesobuthus Vachon 1950 from China are recorded, and diagnoses of M. karshius sp.
Mesobuthus eupeus (Scorpiones: Buthidae) from Iran: A polytypic species complex
TLDR
The hypothesis that M. eupeus is a polytypic species complex and possibly in- cludes more than one valid species is confirmed and raised to the species level according to comparative morphological analysis.
THE FIRST DNA PHYLOGENY OF FOUR SPECIES OF MESOBUTHUS (SCORPIONES, BUTHIDAE) FROM EURASIA
TLDR
The first molecular phylogeny is presented for four species of the scorpion genus Mesobuthus, based on DNA sequences of three gene fragments, revealing a clear deep splitting between the “western clade” consisting of M. eupeus and M. caucasicus and the possible existence of multiple species.
GEOGRAPHICAL DISTRIBUTION OF TWO SPECIES OF MESOBUTHUS (SCORPIONES, BUTHIDAE) IN CHINA: INSIGHTS FROM SYSTEMATIC FIELD SURVEYS AND PREDICTIVE MODELS
TLDR
The geographical distributions of two Mesobuthus scorpions in China are provided through a combined study of systematic field surveys and GIS-based ecological niche modeling using 227 surveyed point occurrence data across an area of ca.
Revision of the Mesobuthus caucasicus complex from Central Asia, with descriptions of six new species (Scorpiones: Buthidae)
A widespread Mesobuthus caucasicus complex, which includes some of the most common scorpions found from the Caucasus to China, is revised for the first time based on new extensive collections from
Cryptic species and co‐diversification in sand scorpions from the Karakum and Kyzylkum deserts of Central Asia
TLDR
Major river systems appear to facilitate diversification among desert scorpions, and shared patterns of lineage divergence across the Amu Darya River region in three scorpion taxa are observed and found support for a shared history of assemblage diversification across this biogeographic barrier.
Saharo-Sindian buthid scorpions; description of two new genera and species from Occidental Sahara and Afghanistan.
Two new genera and species of Saharo-Sindian buthid scorpions are described on the basis of single specimens collected respectively in the deserts of Occidental Sahara and the North of Afghanistan.
