Contribution to the systematic knowledge of scorpions belonging to the tityus bolivianus complex scorpiones buthidae



Contribution to the systematic knowledge of scorpions belonging to the tityus bolivianus complex scorpiones buthidae



Revue Arachnologique 6(3): 107-126



In this paper 15 species of Tityus Koch, 1836, associated with the T. bolivianus "complex" are studied. An important material, including types, has been studied for all the species. The following synonyms are proposed: Tityus kraepelini Borelli, 1899 = T. pugilator Pocock, 1898; Tityus andinus Kraepelin, 1911 = T. argentinus Borelli, 1899; Tityus bocki Kraepelin, 1911 = T. argentinus Borelli, 1899; Tityus mazzai Mello-Leitao, 1932 = T. argentinus Borelli, 1899. Two other synonyms are confirmed: Tityus ecuadorensis zarumae Pocock, 1898 = T. ecuadorensis Kraepelin, 1896; Tityus quinquinae Pinto, 1931 = T. uruguayensis Borelli, 1901. Due to the possible presence of polymorphism, the taxonomic status of some species must be further investigated. The Tityus bolivianus "complex" shows a geographic distribution along the foothills of the Andes, from Ecuador to the north of Argentina; one species is isolated in Uruguay and adjacent areas of Brazil and Argentina. [Additional species studied are T. simonsi, T. demangei, T. soratensis and T. footei.].
