Quote :
The lethal members of the Buthidae family include the genera of Buthus, Parabuthus, Mesobuthus, Tityus, Leiurus, Androctonus, and Centruroides.

Are there anyone who have heard about a Mesobuthus sp. killing a human or maybe have some reliable papers thats indicates that Question

I did a research project/presentation on the development of scorpion antivenom and nowhere did I see the Mesobuthus sp. being mentioned.

Strange...I couldn't find any LD50 value for any Mesobuthus sp. other than Mesobuthus eupeus LD50 1.45 mg/kg (I wouldn't call that lethal) and I would think (if there isn't any report of people got stung and died) that it's necessary to know the LD50 value to conclude that Mesobuthus sp. could be lethal.
It's funny, by looking at the Authors of this publicity, that they do make mistakes like that scratch

Thanks for reply MissAdema

Well Mesobuthus tamulus was changed into Hottentotta tamulus that might have had something to do with it, just a guess

Yes maybe you right.That's the only possible reason I can believe without any cases of death.
