ABSTRACT Two new humicolous micro-buthid species belonging to the genus Microananteris Lourenço, 2003 are described from French Guiana. The descriptions are based on two adult specimens collected in organic soil with the use of extraction by the Berlese method. The new discoveries bring further support to the validity of the genus Microananteris. The geographic distribution of the known species of Microananteris remains limited to the only territory of French Guiana.

A further new species of the genus Microananteris Lourenço, 2003, from French Guiana (Scorpiones, Buthidae)
TLDR
The new description is based on three adult specimens, one female and two males collected not underground, but from the soil surface, using intensive night search with the use of UV lights.

A new species of Troglotayosicus Lourenço, 1981 (Scorpiones: Troglotayosicidae) from southern Ecuador
TLDR
The new species was found actively wandering on the surface at night, which provides relevant ecological information and expands the distribution range of the genus Troglotayosicus 130 km southwards.
Eyeless forest litter scorpions: a new species from the island of Halmahera (Moluccas), Indonesia (Scorpiones, Chaerilidae)
TLDR
The new species is the first eyeless scorpion of the genus Chaerilus to be found in leaf litter, and is described from the south of the island of Halmahera (Moluccas) in Indonesia.
On the identity of Microananteris, with a discussion on pectinal morphology, and description of a new Ananteris from Brazil (Scorpiones, Buthidae)
TLDR
The characters originally used to define the monotypic genus Microananteris Lourenco, 2003 are reanalyzed from the point of view of their usefulness to justify its recognition as a genus apart from Ananteris Thorell, 1891 and there is no evidence in support of its validity.
THE "ANANTERIS GROUP" (SCORPIONES: BUTHIDAE); SUGGESTED COMPOSITION AND POSSIBLE LINKS WITH OTHER BUTHIDS
TLDR
The composition of the "Ananteris group" (sense Fet et al., 2005) is tentatively proposed and the biogeographic patterns presented by extant and fossil elements of this group confirm a model of panbiogeographic distribution which clearly corres- ponds with old Pangaean patterns.
Akentrobuthus leleupi, a new genus and species of humicolous scorpion from eastern Zaïre, representing a new subamily of the Buthidae
TLDR
Apically perforated sensory macro­setae, for which a contact chemoreceptor function is proposed, are described as a remarkable feature of this new species, the only other scorpion known to have these specialized setae being Microtityus rickyi Kj.-Waer.
Plucking with the plectrum: phylogeny of the New World buthid scorpion subfamily Centruroidinae Kraus, 1955 (Scorpiones: Buthidae) reveals evolution of three pecten-sternite stridulation organs
TLDR
The phylogeny indicates that three distinct types of pecten-sternite stridulation organ evolved in Heteroctenus, Jaguajir and Rhopalurus, justifying the redefinition of Rhop alurus and Troglorhopaluras, the revalidation of Heter octopus Pocock, 1893, and the recently created genera Ischnotelson Esposito et al., 2017 and Jagujir Espositto et al, 2017.
The Fauna of British India: including Ceylon and Burma
TLDR
The early investigations of the late Sir William Herdman on the pearl fisheries of Ceylon, begun in 1902, suggested infection with larval cestodes as a cause of pearl formation and thus directed attention to the cestode parasites of fishes found in Indian seas, which led to a series of papers by Dr. Southwell, who later turned his attention also to thecestodes of Indian land vertebrates.
