Euscorpius is the first research publication completely devoted to scorpions (Arachnida: Scorpiones). Euscorpius 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). Euscorpius is an expedient and viable medium for the publication of serious papers in scorpiology, including (but not limited to): systematics, evolution, ecology, biogeography, and general biology… 
Two new scorpion species of genus Brachistosternus (Scorpiones: Bothriuridae) from northern Chile
TLDR
39 scorpion species are now known from Chile, ten of them occur in the Coquimbo Region, being the region with the more diverse scorpion fauna in the country, and adaptation characters of the psammophilous Br.
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.
NOTES ON THE GENUS BRACHISTOSTERNUS (SCORPIONES, BOTHRIURIDAE) IN CHILE, WITH THE DESCRIPTION OF TWO NEW SPECIES
TLDR
Two new species of Brachistosternus from Chile are described, one of which can be distinguished from most other species of the genus because the divided dorsal gland of the telson, and the other related to the Argentine plains species.
The genus Brachistosternus (Scorpiones: Bothriuridae) in Chile, with Descriptions of Two New Species
Abstract We review the taxonomy of the Brachistosternus Pocock, 1893 scorpions of Chile, providing revised diagnoses, comprehensive distribution maps (based on all known locality records), and an
HIGHER SYSTEMATICS OF SCORPIONS FROM THE CRATO FORMATION, LOWER CRETACEOUS OF BRAZIL
TLDR
It is confirmed that the lineages of two modern families date back at least to the Early Cretaceous and, considering their current distribution, were probably present before the break‐up of the supercontinent Gondwana.
NOTES ON THE GENUS BRACHISTOSTERNUS (SCORPIONES, BOTHRIURIDAE) IN CHILE, WITH THE DESCRIPTION OF TWO NEW SPECIES
Two new species of Brachistosternus from Chile are described. Brachistosternus (Leptosternus) cekalovici new species can be distinguished from most other species of the genus because the divided
Systematics of the Genus Pseudolychas Kraepelin (Scorpiones: Buthidae)
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis confirms the monophyly of Pseudolychas and its placement as the sister group of a larger monophyletic group including Grosphus Simon, 1888, Parabuthus Pocock, 1890, and Uroplectes Peters, 1861.
Two new Euscorpius species from central-western Greece (Scorpiones: Euscorpiidae)
Two new Euscorpius species are described, based on specimens collected by P.M. Giachino & D. Vailati in central-western Greece in neighboring Aitoloakarnania (Western Greece) and Fokida (Central

Phylogeny and Classification of the Superfamily Scorpionoidea Latreille 1802 (Chelicerata, Scorpiones): An Exemplar Approach
TLDR
A re‐investigation of scorpionoid phylogeny is presented here, based on 115 morphological characters and 71 exemplar species, and revisions are proposed to the existing suprageneric classification of the Scorpionoidea, including new diagnoses, new descriptions, and an illustrated key to the families and subfamilies.
Evolution of Scorpion Orthobothriotaxy: A Cladistic Approach
TLDR
Phylogenetic results of this analysis, based entirely on the derivation of orthobothriotaxic patterns, show that Archaeobuthus is the plesiomorphic sister group of all Recent scorpion, placed between the ancient palaeopisthacanthids and Recent scorpions.
The Shape of the Sternum in Scorpions as a Systematic and a Phylogenetic Character
IT is generally recognized that the shape of the sternum furnishes one of the important characters for the distinction of families in recent scorpions. The small family Bothriuride is the only one in
Fossil Evidence, Terrestrialization and Arachnid Phylogeny
TLDR
This work proposes a synapomorphy for scorpions 1 eurypterids, a postabdomen of five segments as part of an opisthosoma of 13 segments, and considers these to include book lungs, Malpighian tubules, absence of carapace pleural margin, and an anteriorly directed mouth.
Scorpions from the Viséan of East Kirkton, West Lothian, Scotland, with a revision of the infraorder Mesoscorpionina
  • A. Jeram
  • Environmental Science, Geography
  • 1993
TLDR
The range of taphonomic effects observed in these and larger individuals suggests that, as a consequence of poor preservation, the morphology of some Upper Palaeozoic scorpions has been misinterpreted by previous workers.
Are There Any Bothriurids (Arachnida, Scorpiones) in Southern Africa?
TLDR
As Gondwanaland fragmented due to plate tectonics, each of the southern continents carried with it a sample of the ancestral biota, and bothriurids would be predicted to occur in southern Africa as well.
Typhlochactas mitchelli, a New Species of Eyeless, Montane Forest Litter Scorpion from Northeastern Oaxaca, Mexico (Chactidae, Superstitioninae, Typhlochactini)
TLDR
Another species of this remarkable genus Typhlochactas is described, the second one from montane forest litter, which is most closely related to T. sylvestris, the other forest litter species, but differs from it in a number of features.
Scorpions for Laboratory Study
The class Arachnida, although a large and important biological group, is given little or no consideration in the laboratory work of most general zoology and biology courses. This is primarily due to
TWO EMENDATIONS TO STAHNKE'S (1974) VAEJOVIDAE REVISIO N (SCORPIONIDA, VAEJOVIDAE )
TLDR
Two emendations to Stahnke's (1974) "Revision and keys to the higher categories of Vejovidae " are given, establishing that the holotype of Physoctonus physurus Mello-Leitao is redescribed, and that this supposedl y vaejovid taxon is a junior synonym of Rhopalurus debilis (Koch), belonging to the family Buthidae.
