Abstract. - A new species of Buthacus Birula, 1908 is described on the basis of one adult male specimen collected in Tindouf, Western Algeria. The new species is mainly characterized by a yellowish coloration without any spots, long pectines with marginal tips extending to the end of sternite V, a very long and curved telson aculeus, chela fingers almost straight with 9 and 10 rows of granules on fixed and movable fingers, respectively, external accessory granules moderate to strong, and tibial spurs moderate on leg III, long on leg IV. This new taxon belongs to the Buthacus leptochelys (Ehrenberg 1829) complex of species and represents the 10th known Buthacus species reported from Algeria. The new species is compared with the six other species of the “leptochelys” complex occurring in the region covering Western Algeria, Northern Mauritania, Northern Western Sahara and Morocco, namely B. occidentalis Vachon, 1953, B. stockmanni Kovařík, Lowe &Šťáhlavský, 2016, B. ziegleri Lourenço, 2000, B. mahraouii Lourenço, 2004, B. maroccanus Lourenço, 2006 and B. algerianus Lourenço, 2006, the three last species being confirmed again as valid species.

Abstract. - A new species, Scorpiops (Euscorpiopspiceus sp. n., belonging to the family Scorpiopidae Kraepelin, 1905 is described based on one adult female and one juvenile male collected in the Province of Khammouane, Laos. The new species presents most features exhibited by scorpions of the genus Scorpiops subgenus Euscorpiops, and is characterized by a very dark pigmentation overall, a large global size and a distinct trichobothrial pattern. This new species may represent one endemic element for the fauna of Khammouane region. This new taxon represents the 100th described species among the currently recognized species for the genus Scorpiops and the 36th for the subgenus Euscorpiops. Comments are also added on the validity of the generic division of the groups included in the family Scorpiopidae and a number of these are revalidated at the subgeneric level.

Abstract. - One new family, genus, and species of fossil scorpion are described from the Meride Limestone (Ladinian, Middle Triassic) of Monte San Giorgio (Southern Alps). This new discovery brings further evidence for the recovery of terrestrial forms of scorpions, following the Late-Permian mass extinction. The new fossil family proposed at present can, once again, be classified within extant familial groups; in this case the superfamily Chactoidea (sensu Lourenço). These results reinforce the proposition that modern scorpions may belong to lineages present at least for 240 Myr.

Abstract. - A new species belonging to the genus Buthus Leach, 1815 (Scorpiones: Buthidae) is described from the region of Manteigas, ‘Parque Natural da Serra da Estrela’ in the Zêzere Valley in the centre of Portugal. Buthus lusitanus sp. n., shows some morphological affinities, coloration in particular, with Buthus occitanus known from South of France and some regions in Spain. The two species probably represent vicariant elements of an older common ancestor, but only a global molecular study of all presumed populations from the Iberian Peninsula will bring a more clear clarification on their status.

ZooBank: http://zoobank.org/BCDC4212-B213-4FC3-BD0E-ED8E815D082C

Abstract. - Scorpions can still be considered rare among the arthropods found trapped in amber; however, in the last twenty years the number of new described taxa knew a remarkable increase. Early Cretaceous Burmese amber, also known as Burmite, brought the major contribution to the knowledge of these amber fossils. In the present contribution one new genera and species are described bringing further confirmation to the validity of the family Protoischnuridae Carvalho & Lourenço, 2001. The discovery of this new scorpion group in Burmite attests to the considerable degree of diversity in these amber-producing forests.

ZooBank: http://zoobank.org/5D7C6CE7-E729-4193-B33E-797F8CF8C062

Abstract. - The extinct bark lice families †Archaeatropidae and †Empheriidae are considered closely related, yet distinct based upon an ever-dwindling set of morphological features. To help highlight the known variability in venation for described species, we present brief discussions for each Cretaceous species for these two families, illustrations of their wing venation, and a key to species. While reviewing Cretaceous Psocopterans belonging to †Archaeatropidae and †Empheriidae, we found a consistent wing venation pattern not yet recognized, and therefore herein describe a new genus and species of extinct bark louse which is tentatively placed within †Archaeatropidae due to many of the forewing veins having a singular row of setae (although several veins also have double setae, a feature common to †Empheriidae) from Myanmar amber

Abstract. - A new species of Buthus is described from the Hoggar Massif located in the South of Algeria. This new species most certainly represents a vicariant element of Buthus tassili Lourenço, species equally described from a Massif formation, the Tassili N’Ajjer, in the South of Algeria. Both species are distributed in high altitudes in these massifs. The studies performed up to now on the Algerian Buthus have a major advantage over those performed for other regions in Africa since done with more precise methods and a better definition of the populations. The number of confirmed species of Buthus in Algeria is raised to ten.

Abstract. - A new species of Buthus is described on the basis of one male and one female collected from Cape St. Vincent (Cabo de São Vicente), located in the Algarve region, in the South of Portugal. This new scorpion taxon represents the 3rd known species of the genus Buthus reported from Portugal and the 14th reported from the Iberian Peninsula. In light of recent studies on the genus Buthus in the Iberian Peninsula (Teruel & Turiel, 2020, 2021; Lourenço, 2021) and considering the geographical distribution presented by the new species with respect to the geographically closest species and their respective habitats, previous records of specimens from Algarve originally considered to belong to Buthus ibericus (Lourenço & Vachon, 2004; Teruel, 2005) are now considered to belong to the new species described here.

Abstract. - One more new  species of fossil scorpion belonging to the genus Chaerilobuthus Lourenço & Beigel, 2011, Chaerilobuthus meggeri Lourenço sp. n., is described from early Cretaceous amber of Myanmar (Burma). To present, this is the 11th species of the genus Chaerilobuthus to be described among 12 specimens already listed in Burmese amber. One specimen remained as Chaerilobuthus sp. This new find attests, once again, to the important degree of diversity among the scorpion fauna found in Burmite amber, and confirms the speciose characteristic of the family Chaerilobuthidae.

Eric Ythier, novembre 2021. Faunitaxys, 9(38) : 1-10.

 

Abstract. A new species of Buthus is described on the basis of six specimens collected in the Eastern Pyrenees, in the South of France. Buthus pyrenaeus sp. n. is mainly characterized by a general yellowish coloration with a dark univittate pattern on tergites, chela fingers with lobe/notch combination obsolete, male slightly larger than same size-class female with chela manus wider than patella and telson laterally compressed, and female with metasomal segment I as wide as long to wider than long. The new species shows affinities with B. alacanti Teruel & Turiel, 2020 (most similar species) and B. occitanus (Amoreux, 1789) but can be easily distinguished from these two species by a combination of several key characters. This new scorpion taxon represents the 2nd known species of the genus Buthus reported from France and the 15th reported from Western Europe.

Abstract. Among Malagasy scorpion genera, Pseudouroplectes Lourenço, 1995 (Buthidae) remains one of the less speciose. All species are extremely rare and known only by a few or even for a single individual. A new species is described from the tropical dry forest of Tsimembo in the Melaky Region, confirming the distribution of the genus to a further northern locality. As for several previous cases, the single holotype specimen was obtained by extraction with the use of Berlese method. The description of one more new species, confirms the distributional pattern of Pseudouroplectes as a typical element of dry forest formations which range from the south to the middle of the Island.

Wilson R. Lourenço, janvier 2022. Faunitaxys, 10(6) : 1 -7.

 

Abstract. The study of one particular scorpion belonging to the genus Cheloctonus Pocock, 1892, found among specimens of the collection ‘E. Simon’ leads to the description of one new species. The new species was collected by Louis Petit during his field trips to Congo (Republic of Congo), a region which corresponded in the 19th century to Equatorial French Africa. The new discovery radically changes the area of distribution of the genus Cheloctonus limited until now to meridional Africa. This disrupted pattern of distribution is similar to that observed for the genus Opisthacanthus Peters, 1861.

Jérémie Lapèze & Carlos Lopez-Vaamonde, février 2022. Faunitaxys, 10(7) : 1 -19

 

Abstract.  - Three new treehoppers species, closely related to Lycoderides brulei Sakakibara, 2013, are described from French Guiana: Lycoderides carboneus Lapèze n. sp., Lycoderides elephantus Lapèze n. sp. and Lycoderides sonzognii Lapèze n. sp. The first two species are described based on adults of both sexes, their last nymphal stage is described and their host plants of the genus Clusia (Clusiaceae) are mentioned and illustrated. Lycoderides sonzognii n. sp. is described based on three females caught with a light trap. Lycoderides elephantus n. sp. has been reared, its biological cycle is presented in detail. Holotypes and some paratypes are deposited at MNHN of Paris. Additional notes about field observations, host-plants, distribution, behavior and predation are presented. These three new species, along with Lycoderides brulei, have a diagnostic character: a line of weakness at the base of the pronotum, morphological feature which is unique among Lycoderides. DNA barcoding allows to match males and females, and each species forms a clade and have been assigned unique Barcode Index Numbers (BIN). An identification key is provided for the four species of Lycoderides having a line of weakness. A revised check-list of the Lycoderides from French Guiana is presented. A discussion about Lycoderes mitratus Germar, 1935 presents how it may have been confused in the past with one of the four species illustrated here.

Abstract. In the context of the São Tomé and Principe project "Archipelago of Biodiversity", a research programme set up by the NGO Microland in partnership with the OPIE-Provence-Alpes-du-Sud, and in collaboration with local authorities and institutions, where a few expeditions have already been carried out since 2019. It was during one of them, in February 2019, that we discovered on the island of Sao Tomé, this cerambycid at Bom Sucesso (0°13'56'' N - 6°35'20'' E). We present its description as well as its picture.

Abstract. A further new species of fossil scorpion belonging to the genus Chaerilobuthus Lourenço & Beigel, 2011 is described from Early Cretaceous Burmite. Chaerilobuthus brandti Lourenço sp. n., is the 12th species to be described for this genus confirming its speciose character. The new species equally shows quite distinct characters when compared to the previous known species, confirming therefore the existence of an important morphological variability within Chaerilobuthus.

Abstract. - The morphological features of Asemolea Bates, 1881 (Calliini) are discussed and expanded, and Callia ambigua Bates, 1885 is transferred to Asemolea. Additional morphological features are provided for Murupi Martins & Galileo, 1998; M. linearis Martins & Galileo, 1998 is newly recorded from French Guiana and chromatic variation is reported. Six new species are described: Scythropopsis tysoni sp. nov., from Guatemala; Asemolea rosea sp. nov. from Guatemala; Inermestola boliviensis sp. nov., from Bolivia; Estola linearis sp. nov., from Ecuador; Estoloides elongata sp. nov., from Panama; and Eranina monnei sp. nov., from Panama. The inclusion of Inermestola chiapasensis Galileo & Moysés, 2013 in this genus is questioned, indicating the need of study of the species to correct the generic allocation. Estola compacta Breuning, 1940 is recorded from Ecuador and Peru, and E. m-flava Breuning, 1940 is recorded from Trinidad and Tobago, from the Brazilian states of Amapá and Pará, and a forgotten record from the Brazilian state of Goiás is reported. The second formally known specimen of Eupogonius fuscovittatus Breuning, 1974 is illustrated, and a new department record in Guatemala is provided. Adesmus stephanus Aurivillius, 1900 is transferred to Eranina Monné, 2005, and Laraesima ochreoapicalis Breuning, 1973 (Compsosomatini) is transferred to Estolomimus Breuning, 1940 (Desmiphorini). Laraesima fuliginea Bates, 1885 is redescribed.
