Okay, so I've been gone a while and I've noticed that occasionally the board get's up on the new species and such but I can't believe this isn't on the boards. Bloody hell, I can't sleep! Do I need to do everything?!?

This month's issue (#85) of Euscorpius:

Description of a New Species of Leiurus Ehrenberg, 1828 (Scorpiones: Buthidae) from Southеastеrn Turkey
Ersen Aydın Yağmur, Halil Koç, and Kadir Boğaç Kunt

Define ages ago. Documentation takes a while: Research & documentation (can take years) -> submit research documentation for review (review period can take weeks to months) -> documentation accepted -> documentation published.....this month, on the 5th.

Awesome, new Leiurus.... and it looks more like a Parabuthus with the shorter proportions...
I wonder if morphological elongation in the case of scorpions is an evolution to desert life as much as it in endemically evolved cave species, which would make this particular species possibly lower on phynological ladder...

Don't mind me, I'm just rambling about things I don't understand lol...

P.S. Anyone find another specimen of Troglorhopalurus translucidens yet, that would be too awesome...

I'm more intereseted in when they find a second specimen of Leiurus jordanensis, it's been almost 9yrs since they found the sole specimen of that species. That one making it into the hobby will be an event to say the least.

ditto Rasputin... me thinks it's the same deal with the Coelacanth... the single holotype specimen turned up in an abnormal location, while a fervent population lives a couple of clicks off where that specimen was found.... but before we continue this conversation about species described from one specimen... could be on a separate thread ya Question

No need as:

1) L.j has been a topic of great interest on other forums for several years and I'm not too overly interested at this juncture about carrying on about this - I've already burnt myself out talking about a species that will probably never be found in the hobby.

2) I could give a damn about fish (especially big ugly fish that I have no desire to consume), this is the "scorpions in general" board and that's what I'm concerned with - hence the news about a new species being documented.

*I'm not trying to sound harsh but it's how I feel about this matter and if I don't express it now, then this could go on forever without end or logic.

Fair enough, but surely you must acknowledge that I'm merely offering parallel insight as to why more specimens of these two scorpion species are still undiscovered...

calm down man... Razz

To explain why after L. jordanensis (Lourenço, Modry & Amr, 2002) and T. translucidus (Lourenço, Baptista & Giupponi, 2004) have not been pursued since their documentation based off the one holotype found for each sp.? You lead the charge by starting the thread. A good point of reference to get the ball rolling would be by contacting Wilson R. Lourenço, Laboratoire de Zoologie (Arthropodes), Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle, 61 rue de Buffon, F-75005
Paris, France, (arachne@mnhn.fr)
and ask him.

I thought it was good parallel insight -- perhaps the type specimen was in an odd spot for the species and no one's looked in the good spot.

Anywho, still exciting to see another member of this genus described. Very Happy
