The life history of Tityus fuhrmanni Kraepelin (Scorpiones, Buthidae)

The life history of Tityus fuhrmanni Kraepelin (Scorpiones, Buthidae)

Biogeographica 76(3): 119-124

Tityus fuhrmanni Kraepelin was described from Angelopolis, today in the Department of Antioquia, Columbia. It may represent an endemic element in this region of the Andes. Some preliminary biological observations were carried out during a trip by Lourenco to the Department of Antioquia in 1998. More recent observations, undertaken in the laboratory, are summarised here. The duration of embryonic development averaged 92 days, while the molts necessary for the acquisition of the different juvenile instars and adulthood took place at ages that averaged : 7, 61, 143, 317 and 482 days. These developmental periods are not greatly different from those recorded in other species of Tityus. They are, however, longer than previously observed in medium sized and larger species of the genus. Morphometric growth values of the different instars are comparable with those in all other species of Tityus.
